Today was my last day at my home church (for the next 3 months).
Since March 2015, I have been teaching the 2+3 year old’s Sunday School class. These two children have been faithful through the past year to show up every week, with the exception of a few times. (no one wants to drive in a snow-storm! haha)
I will miss my time with them dearly, and I will continue to pray for you two as you make some of your own changes through the next few months.
This precious dear friend has also been faithful through many snowstorms, and rain showers to bring sunshine to our classroom. Miss Ellie has been my second pair of hands in playing with these children, leading them in songs, and teaching them God’s love. I’m going to miss her joyful spirit!
I can’t thank God enough for this wonderful church family that has shown so much love and support through the past few months. Even now, 5 days before I leave, and I have people handing me cash and telling me they’ll be praying and I want to break down and cry.
Every little bit means a lot, and I’m so thankful from the top of my heart to the tips of my toes! I wish everyone had a church as loving as the one that I have had the blessing to to grow up in.
And Lastly, I thank God for my 5 best friends. These girls have encouraged me, helped me grow, prayed with me, packed with me, cried with me and been a friend for when I was needing one. This past weekend I got to spend celebrating birthdays and taking pictures, and talking and being the grownup goofs we are. Dear girls, I don’t know where I would be in life without and you and I don’t want to know. I will miss you. I won’t have a friend like your smiles, your laughter, your braveness, your encouragement or your love that you show me daily. I will always keep you in my prayers until we meet again. ♥
I follow Christ, knowing I have a whole prayer support, a whole family who is right behind me. Whether this be the worst time of my life or the best time of my life, I know God has a plan and I trust his plan is perfect.
“Lord you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.” – Isaiah 25:1
