And we wait…
And we wait…
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
Did you think I was talking about a man? Ha! No, well kinda…2 years ago my family and I left the church we were attending. There was a political uprising and our Pastor was fired. Sadly the whole thing was a mess and there was another pastor waiting in the wings…not how it’s suppose to be done but that’s life. Our pastor went about things and eventually started his own church. Anyway, my family and I decided to look at other churches. Our first choice stuck. I’ve been going to church my whole life and never, since childhood, have I felt so at home in a church. The people are are amazing. Everyone is so friendly. They actually make you feel as if you are a family. We’ve been at this church for 2 years now and I can’t imagine ever going somewhere else. Yesterday, after 2 1/2 years we voted in our new pastor. The previous pastor left to start his own church, at least that is my understanding. Pastor Heath answered the view of call and came to preach. He was awesome. Kind of nervous, which is understandable, but his message was awesome. It was about unrealistic expectations, which I found to be very fitting. As you can imagine there are people out there who will expect the new pastor to be just like the previous pastor or the interim pastor we have had. I kind of feel like he was saying “I am me, I am not them and don’t expect me to be.” Anyhoo, after the service we had a luncheon and Pastor gave his testimony. After a Q&A session he and his family were taken upstairs and we cast our votes. It was a silent vote. We marked yes or no on a slip of paper we were given and they were counted. It was almost a unanimous vote yes.
We are all so excited to have Pastor Mike as our shepherd. His first official Sunday will be April 24th and sadly I will be out of town at a book festival.
I’ve been saying for a couple weeks that I need to take an afternoon and clean up my little flower garden and get it ready for spring. Well I haven’t done it and quite honestly haven’t paid any attention to my little garden, until yesterday.
As I was walking back from the trash dumpster I noticed some color poking through the dead leaves and (very) dry dirt.
I have columbines coming back in 2 places and several daffodils. The daffodil bulbs multiplied when germinating this year. I planted 2 little daffodils last year and this year I have 2 coming up.
There are also 2 little pansies poking their heads back up 🙂 I’m so excited. I brought my hose out and watered them really good. Now I need to add more dirt. That will come payday.
Happy Spring everyone!
