What a week it has been!
I’m exhausted and exhilarated all at the same time on this Thursday night.
Today was Mission of Hope’s annual Christmas Giveaway. It was the last big thing on my plate for the Mission. We’ve been planning it for months. It was a beautiful day. I don’t think it could have gone any more wonderful than it did. This year 230 families were blessed with a generous Christmas meal to take home, winter clothing items, and toys. I’m thankful for all who participated in this Giveaway this year. I believe God was glorified!
Tomorrow is my last day at Mission of Hope. I’m sure it’ll be an emotion-filled day. I gave my notice five weeks ago, and I have to say I don’t remember any five weeks going by so fast in my life! It’ll be hard to say goodbye to my friends who I have had the privileging of serving for the last thirteen years. There’s no doubt I will miss them. But I’m ready to move on to the next chapter God has for me. And I look forward to it.
And yes, there’s much gossip going around as to why I’m leaving. I suggest those who are talking should talk to me instead of contributing to the gossip. God has directed this decision in my life, and it really doesn’t matter what others have to say. Those who know me know the truth, and I’m thankful they do.
But moving on…
Zach’s school Christmas concert was Monday night. It was refreshing to hear our high school sing about the real meaning of Christmas…the birth of Jesus. It warmed my heart and he did a great job. I couldn’t be more proud of this guy!
Am I the only one who’s a hard time believing Christmas is less than a week away?? I’m not ready yet, and neither is our home. Our first Christmas celebration is Monday night. But with today behind me, I’ll have more time to get done what I need to get done. Trying to keep in perspective WHY we celebrate Christmas. 🙂
God bless you this Thursday night. Thank you once again for journeying with me!
