I'm so glad you've stopped by my blog! I am a Women's Minister and a former Pastor's Wife. I love finding God in my regular-everyday-stuff. I struggle with keeping up with the laundry, I love blogging, and my kids are my first line of ministry. I am recently widowed. So God and I are on a brand new journey as I try to find peace and understanding. Please grab a cup of coffee and let's get to know one another as we journey on our faith walk together.

Where I Belong

Happy Veteran's Day!  Before I left school yesterday I cleaned off my white board and prepared for today. I wrote the date: 11-11-11 - how cool!  Then I remembered what this day is for - honoring our Veterans!

So thanks Dad, Paw Paw, Papa Joe, Uncle Sammy, Uncle Gordon, Caleb - and all the many other family & friends who have or are still serving this wonderful nation!!!

As I think about my own life this morning - I wonder how these men felt as they traveled to new & different nations.  I'm sure there was an appreciation for the USA - and probably a little bit of "this is not my home.  I'll serve my time here - and then return to where I belong."

I've often wondered that about my own life.  Where exactly do I belong?  I'm learning a little more every day what God wants me to see & do in this new life.  But the one thing that keeps coming to the surface is - I'm supposed to serve here.  Complete my assignment here - but this too is not my home!

I must say - Heaven is so much sweeter now and I can't wait to go home!  Just give me Jesus!

I heard this song by Building 429 this week and totally fell in love with it!  I hope you enjoy it!
