I'm getting older!

Today was such a sweet day! Today at "house church" we had a wonderful time in the word and fellowship! Our sweet Tess (in the picture with me) is leaving to spend time with family before heading to Ethopia. I will surely miss her. We had a Thanksgiving meal,yummy! Our friends also presented us with a cookie cake, it's my birthday! It was wonderful sharing my day with such a great group of people. I admire the sweet people serving in Orange Mound, I feel so blessed to have them in my life. My life is changing forever !

Preparing to serve.

The lady on the left is a sweet, sweet young lady that's been serving in Orange Mound. She's getting ready to serve in Ethopia in a few weeks. She'll be leaving Memphis in less than two weeks to spend time with her family before serving overseas. She's going to help school some of the missionary children! I'm so excited about her journey. Who knew that in just a few months of serving with her, I would miss her so much. What I'm learning on this journey is that ALL hands must be on deck. When one person is gone we notice it. I'm praying for her!
I'm reading this book: 
I'm preparing my heart for the journey that awaits us. It's exciting but serious. I understand (or perhaps I don't) the gravity of what we're being called to do.  We are sacrificing some of our own comforts for bringing hope to those who need it most. I don't have all the answer or all the money to fix very real needs. What I'm bringing to the table is Christ, Christ alone. (Well maybe a hug and a smile) My mom recently told me that she always knew I would be a missionary. She said I've had a heart for missions since I was little. I never knew she thought that. I'm so glad to have the support of my parents! God is good and I'm so thankful!

I voted!

We finished school early today so that I could go out and vote! The lines were not long. Yay me!!! No lines!!! 
If you've managed to keep up with this blog and seasons of drought then you know my marriage is less than smooth. We are taking it one second at a time literally!! Today was heated of course as we (mainly him) discussed our thoughts about the election. I'm perfectly fine with agreeing to disagree but some subjects like politics, religion and race relations bring out "THE BEAST" in people. Well it was no different in our home this morning!! The beast was unleashed, good thing I was ready for battle this morning!! God prepared me to be ready for disengagement. Sometimes that's really hard, but not today! I walked away with my peace and joy intact! The Lord keeps reminding me and I'm (slowly) realizing that this battle is not against flesh and blood......
Happy Voting and may the peace of God rest in your home, your city, and our nation!!!!
