It’s Sunday again. Seems like the weeks pass by like minutes these past few years. One day runs into another, but Sunday is special in so many ways. Especially today. We are going to church. We haven’t attended in quite a while – even though we have been communing at home as shut-ins and watching online services. This will be the last Sunday with our current pastor, who recently took another call. The call will not require him to move his residence, do he and his wife will still be in the area. He will be serving a huge congregation and will also be able to transition into retirement when the time is right. To say we will miss him is an understatement. We have grown together as shepherd and sheep – brothers and sisters, family- friends and have had the pleasure of his knowledge and wisdom for many years.

Saying goodbye will not be easy, but we know that it is for the best. God’s divine calling always serves His purpose and is for our good. It will be somewhat of a rebuilding process for our church, but we are confident that God will lead that too.

Sundays are like new beginnings also. We’re starting a new week, another seven days of living, opportunities and time to share God’s grace with others. I often wonder why we’re still walking on this earth, but God apparently isn’t done with us yet – or perhaps we need more tweaking. As we look ahead to each new day, each new week, every new year – let’s never forget about the love that God showers on us every day. Approach those new times as adventures – part of a journey – and most definitely a gift of God.



About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    I usually help with Sunday School and took a day off. Feeling guilty watching online.

  2. Sue and I started going to a new church (to us) a month back. Last Sunday we missed because she was ill, but you sure miss it. We’ve also seen Pastor’s come and go in churches in the past and we have also been in that situation of going on to the next call. It truly lets you know the reality of being brothers and sisters in Christ!

      The church community is a very tight knit group. I don’t know how many folks I’ve run into who are involved in church work. It’s like one big family
