{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.

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.

{Five Random Facts About Me} And a Few Pictures.

Several of my facebook and blogging friends join in on {random facts} at times and it always fun to learn something new about them. It is funny though at how we can know someone forever and learn something new about them and think; "why I never knew that". Thought it would be fun to share a few random things about me.

I have made every kind of pasta salad that you can imagine for ou

This is our staff at the church where I have been the Administrative Secretary for 20 plus years.  As most of my friends know I work and minister at a church but I am a member of another church, sister church,  where I worship, teach and serve.
