I am to the point where I am losing the well planned--organized move---and instead throwing things at any available box or container. Thank goodness for my sweet friends-Philip, Sonja & Glenda -who came last night---not only fed me, helped with the things too heavy to lift by myself, but most important listened to me. THIS IS PAINFUL! More is happening than just this move---but I have decided to leave that out of the story. I have determined that if it does nothing for the cause of Christ--it does not need to be posted on the WWW. Although I will be back staying with Helen after a couple of weeks until the school year is over, this truly marks the FACT that I am moving---I am leaving what I know and love behind--my comfort zone--my people that I love---and trying to start again--at 64. DAUNTING--OVERWHELMING!
For those that have been praying that I would be able to take this step--without losing sleep---I am NOT sure I should thank you. I am convinced God gave me this cold so I would have to take a boat load of drugs---THAT MAKE YOU SLEEP-last night. So if you looked out and saw that beautiful moon---you KNOW that normally I would be howling at it all night---instead I merely drifted in and out of a drug induced comma--struggling to get a breathe. CAREFUL WHAT YOU PRAY FOR!
SO I am about to unhook from my Louisiana Internet connection---for the last time---everything will be packed in the truck tonight and I will head West EARLY in the morning. Pray for traveling grace and that I won't be throwing things at the truck as it pulls out tomorrow. Pray for my strength---physical and emotional--as I leave the home that I have grown to love and the family and friends that I leaned upon daily and plant myself in unknown soil.
I will be "Unplugged" until this weekend--I don't have the patience to blog via I Phone---so my next post will come from my next nest to be---in the GREAT STATE OF TEXAS. Praying that God will plant me and give me ministry that will glorify Him. I am NOT closing this book---I am just starting the next chapter---with the entire book full of characters and places that I love still within reach of a quick turn back....
As Brother Jack once ended every Sunday Service--
Pray for me---As I Pray for You
Love You All!
