Since my last post, I’ve been to Annual Conference… and I have many thoughts and opinions that I’m STILL not ready to publicly post… let’s just say that I was made to think during the conference… and God continues to speak! My daughter Michele has graduated from high school and my daughter Sarah is doing a leadership development program… somewhere between a boot camp and a military school setting. Josh continues to run and play… and has begun to explore more (including starting to climb out of his bedroom window after a toy one night after evening church). Gay continues to work as a counselor and I’m back to work… and doing pretty much a full day every day. And our church has publicly welcomed and celebrated the Rev. Leo C. Cramer on the 50th anniversary of his ordination as an elder in the Methodist connection… AND recognized him as “Pastor Emeritus.” I have LOADS of posts running through my head about most of these events… but I’m still in “catch up” mode after being on sick leave for two months… so I want to share an inspirational email I received from a friend. Particularly appropriate at this time of moves and transitions in the Methodist clergy realm…
I wanted to let everyone know that I have moved, and to give you my new address. I have moved from Beggars’ Alley located on Poverty Lane at the corner of Bleak and Busted Circle. As of today, I have a brand new home.
My new address is: Living Well Drive in the Abundance Subdivision, located at the corner of Blessings Street and Thankful Peak.
You get there by taking the Praising Him Interstate, which runs North, South, East and West. No Longer will I allow myself to travel on Begging Peter to pay off Paul Route, because it’s located at a dead-end intersection called: I Don’t Have, that crosses Borrowers’ Junction.
I no longer hang out at Failures’ Place near Excuses Avenue, next to Procrastination Mall. I’ve moved on to an upscale community called Higher Heights with unlimited potential and opportunities for me to Succeed–look at me!!
Please know that each day that HE awakens me, I am thankful to be a product of my new environment. All of my clothes are MASTER TAILOR-MADE. I am dressed in life’s finest.
Let me introduce you to all of my new neighbors: CONCEIVE IT, BELIEVE IT, ACT ON IT, HAVE FAITH, BE PERSISTENT, AND ALWAYS BE PREPARED TO ACHIEVE.
Life is good because: GOD IS GOOD!!!!! HAVE YOU MOVED TOO??? If not I pray that you will be moving soon!! HAVE A BLESSED DAY!
