Okay, so tonight we had our LTM meeting. We were a bit crazy, but in a way, we deserve a little fun. We’ve worked so hard the last few weeks, few months, and for Jonathan a few years. This past weekend was really awesome. It didn’t matter that we tripped the breaker! The gathering was wonderful and we learned so much more than we ever would have if everything went perfectly. We’ve heard from several people who enjoyed the service. We had people come who were far from God. We had people who are seeking to take a next step with Jesus. That is so awesome…. we are fulfilling our mission. I am so blessed, so grateful to be a part of such a great team and a part of something that is so much bigger than all of us. I just want to take a moment and thank everyone who has touched my life and influenced me to be the person I am…. my parents, my sisters, my family, my husband and baby girl, past church friends, new church friends, friends of my childhood, co-workers, bosses…. and so many more. Everything I have been through, everyone I have meant and talked to, everything I’ve read, heard, and saw…. it’s all made me and shaped me into who I am today. I am reminded of this verse: Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” I want to always be thankful for the things I have gone through. They have served to strengthen me.
