Long time

It's been a long time since I've posted anything and, honestly, I'm not sure anyone reads this anymore but tonight I need to post for me. Today was "Preview Sunday" for the new church campus we are helping to launch. Henry was at the Connect Table and I was at the computer doing the projection of words, slides, etc. It was almost overwhelming. It's been a long, long time since I felt such a peace and belonging in church. I couldn't help but fight back the tears as the words to the music came up and God ministered to my spirit in a very special way. I thank Him for that gift. Life is full with family and work. Helping to launch this new church campus is even more fulfilling. The mission of the church is to help people take their next step toward Christ. Being a part of this church family is our next step toward Christ. Thank you, Grace Orlando and Mike and Kelly, for your vision of one church and many campuses. Thank you Bobby and Maggie and Kyle and Angela for following God's call to start this specific campus and for welcoming us into your family. God is good, all the time; all the time, God is good.

Yes, i still like to read it. I have been in Indian Rocks Beach for three years caring for my mother after she had a stroke in August 2009. She passed into Eternal Rest the day after my birthday last month. I have been attending Anona and I see John Hires from time to time. I'm so glad you all are doing just fine.

Remembering the special times at FUMC Apopka.

I'm sorry to hear about your mom, Sharon. Thank you for your sweet comment. We LOVE the Hires like second parents. Please say hello to John for us if you think of it next time you see him.
