I know I haven’t blogged in a while, but it’s truly been a tough last couple of weeks. Without going into detail, I ask that you guys pray for my family. We are transitioning in a big way with our children. They are growing up and in most ways that’s great, but in some ways it’s hard on our family who’s been so close to see some of that separation in our lives. Oh well, I said I wasn’t going into detail. Just pray for us through this and if the blogs are a little more scarce for a while, please understand.
I do want to say this. We could not ask for better care from our shepherds at Creekside. I don’t mean any slam on others when I say this, but I don’t know of a time in our ministry lives where we’ve been able to sit down with an entire eldership and just open up and spill out our hearts like we did last night. Another interesting thing is that these men saw our need and sensed our need to pray and receive counselling before we asked for it. They called us together to pray with us and told us that we could share as much or little as we would like about our situation and then listened as we told our story. Following that story, they offered gentle advise with love and concern followed by prayer. WOW!!! What a blessing it is to be shepherded and feel confident that we will not be judged for our struggle, but loved through it. Thank you God for our shepherds and friends in our church family.
Thank you my blog family for listening too. You guys are wonderful–all of you!!
