Today is a sad day to me due to the fact we are moving from the community we so lovingly nicknamed 'Mayberry' and due to the other fact that we won't have Internet for a while. Bell south told me it's not available, to check back with them in 90 days! I 'bout died! So, I got busy contacting people with other means of Internet and maybe one of their ideas will work out for us VERY SOON!!! Check back at Life By George often to see if I'm back. I have never had the pleasure to meet most of you, but YOU are such an important and special part of my days. I look forward to visiting with you each morning as I enjoy my morning coffee. Please know what a blessing you are to me. O.K., now I'm sounding like I'm not coming back! Ha.
The other news I wish to share with you is this: March 15th was the last day my husband was pastor at Bethany. Sunday night, May 24, Freedom Baptist Church in Amory voted Scot in as their new pastor. It's exciting, yet scary. I've posted about when you don't know what to do, don't do anything, and I assure you God works in those kinds of situations. Waiting on God did two things for us; put us in HIS perfect will and kept us from going ahead of HIM, which always leads to trouble. Please pray for us as we serve Christ and the people at Freedom.
This week, one journey in Life By George comes to a close, but a new journey begins. As long as the Lord is walking by my side, and occasionally He has to carry me, then, all is well. We are excited about our new place to worship and serve.
We were already in the process of renting a house in Belmont, so we are still moving there as I type! We will look for something bigger and more permanent later. Life By George has been moving at a rapid speed. Most days, I'm quite dizzy! I've just grabbed hold and tried to hang on!
One suggestion: be extra kind to your pastor and his family. I had no idea of the heavy loads they carry each and every day until God called Scot to preach. I had always tried to be very respectful of the man of God and his family, and was pretty thoughtful, but if I'd known then what I know now by living it, I would have done so much more to be helpful and encouraging. And I definitely would have prayed for them more.
Well, so long for a few days or weeks. Hope your days are full of God's goodness, joy, and peace.
Keep bloggin'! I'll catch up with all of your news and encouraging words when I return.
