{I Am Retired Y'all!}

  It sure is a bittersweet time but I am surely looking forward to my adventure with the Lord. I wanted to share a few pictures with my friends. I have received so many phone calls, texts, cards and gifts this week that have just brought tears and joy.  Turning in my office keys of many years was hard! But, Jeremiah 29:11 is surely reminder that God has set the plans for my life and that I will trust.  I only had the blessing of serving alongside Pastor Scott for nearly a year and I pray God's blessings upon him and his family as his journey continues. However, he is a quick learner and learned that I was the BOSS! LOL! The former pastor and his wife that hired me 22 plus years ago even tuned in to the recognition with a video. It melted my heart. I will never forget interviewing with Bro. Edsel in his office and then I was interviewed by the personnel team.  Lastly, Bro. Edsel's wife Judy interviewed me at a luncheon. Bro. Edsel trusted her discernment of me totally. However,

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORD-OVERWHELMED

  Just daily life can overwhelm us at times can't it? We get to the end of our day and look at our 10 pages of to-d o list and we think to ourse lves "Will CALGONE reall y take me away?".

We can't or we haven't learned to say NO!   Tip:  Did you know that according to most health-re lated phys icians that sometimes (not all the time) a depressed state of mind is because we try to

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORD-TRUST

Awe...it feels good to be back to blogging a little. Not sure how much blogging I will do but hopefully I can at least keep up with my Wednesday in the Word! I do love it.   I do want to send out a great big THANK YOU for those of you that have expressed to me in such a personal way that I was missed! You will never know what that has meant to me! T HANK YOU !   I was working on my Bible study for this week and wouldn't you know it? It is basically on Trusting God. We are so quick to say to ourselves and to others that YES we do trust God but I am afraid that if we were to be truthful that most of us are by " Totally Tr usting " God like we are a smorgasbord at a restaurant. We like to pick and choose what we really Trust Him with.  The real issue of the matter is that we want to control!  Control is the se cret ad ultress to good intent! Think about it! We really have good intentions but just like a robber hiding in a dark closet, control ambushes us. It gags
