Day by day

It’s a time of “ordinary” time – except for a precious member passing away, new challenges financially (both good and bad), seeking God’s direction (always), sermon preparation (weekly), personal time for spiritual renewal (NECESSARY), and …

I know I’m not alone in this so I’m praying that each of us will take time to BREATHE – God truly has created us to be Human Beings and not Human Doings.  I know the things I stress about are usually not worth it.  I am so grateful for my Christian family who helps remind me to take care.  I am listening.  And I hope you are, too!


The Excitement Continues!!!

I’m getting ready for my 2nd Disciples Women’s Retreat!  Yep – this was one of the very first “happenings” when I first arrived at this awesome parish.  My head was spinning (where on earth was Ripley?) with so many “news”.  The women I met, both at FCC Parkersburg and others around the state, were awesome.  So much energy, so many opportunities for worship, so much fun and fellowship.  This really set me up for what would prove to be an exceptional year.  I have the privilege to serve in a setting where people are excited to be Christians and it shows!!!

I am excited to be able to participate in the Sunday service.  I look forward to seeing women I haven’t seen in a while.  I know this will be a blessed time and am praying for everyone who has had a part in this Retreat.

A hint on what I will be saying, “Just what do you think God wants for you?”  Show up Sunday and perhaps you just might get a clue.


…Till Next Time
