about moving on

This is the beautiful steeple on the Independent Presbyterian Church
in downtown Savannah, Georgia.
This is where Lucy and Harry
attend school.
Note the blue, blue sky,
and the green, green leaves on the trees.
Springtime in Savannah.
Not to be missed!

Steeples point heavenward where God and Jesus reside,
and are meant to bring glory to Them.
The Holy Spirit lives in the hearts of believers here on earth.
Our Helper, our Comforter,
Jesus sent Him 
after He went back to heaven 
to enable us to live the Christian life.

This coming Sunday will be David's last day at 
Cornerstone Church of Savannah.
He will be accepting a position at another church in Savannah,
Community Bible Church.
He and Erika are excited about this new ministry.

For me personally,
these last three and a half years have been amazing.
I love all of the people,
the children and the babies,
I have loved being in a small church....
being intimately involved in people's lives,
praying constantly for the church,
watching and waiting to see what God would do.
I have loved the songs we sing.
I am so glad to have been a part of
the beginnings of Cornerstone.
Bubba and I can count on two hands 
the number of days we missed.

To sit under David's teaching
was one of the biggest blessings of this mother's life.
Clear and concise,
completely understanable,
at times unbearably hard to listen to
as my inner sins and motives were disclosed.
But always truth,
verse by verse,
chapter by chapter, 
book by book.
I have learned so much.

We believers grow and change.
We try with God's help and His guidance
to discover and follow His will for our lives,
to be at the places where He needs us the most,
at the time those opportunities present themselves.

So there, David,
I will be praying for you as you start this new chapter....
but always.....

"Preach the word!
Be ready in season and out of season,
with all patience and teaching."
II Timothy 4:2

(Ich Liebe Dich)
