Our church gave me birthday presents. Let me explain first that there was a little joke about me being the “church diva.” This was started by wonderful husband. So being me – I played along and didn’t discourage it. I said that so you would understand my gifts – a pink cowboy hat with a tiara and Godiva chocolates (which I was told meant: Go Diva chocolates). So Tom wouldn’t feel left out they gave him a big belt buckle with a large “T” on it. Funny aren’t they?
Our church family have been so wonderful. They helped throughout this whole process, even though our leaving was sad for them. They helped prepare the house for sale, helped packed boxes and then on moving day – pack the truck.
Yesterday was our last Sunday. There were tears, laughter and lots of hugs. The church released us for this next phase in our lives and we released them to the destines that God has for each of them. We past the baton to the co-pastors who are perfect for what God will do with this body of believers. They are in great hands.
Today, we signed the closing papers and hit the road. We were so tired from the last few weeks of activities. We are grateful to be able to ride together. Our Explorer on this really cool car carrier is pictured above.
Goodnight until tomorrow.
