To Everything There Is a Season

Dear Pastor ****** and everyone in the basic lay speaking class,

I got into my car and began to drive to the class today, sermon prepared. I drove for only a few minutes, then turned around and came back home.

The sermon I'd written was about change - changes we make and changes that are forced upon us.

My church, like many in our area, has been clinging to life, but its demise is clearly a matter of time at this point. I wrote about that and how embracing change should be a good thing, as that is when we grow. The scripture I'd referenced was Ecclesiastes chapter 3:1-10.

In contemplating these changes, I also contemplated how they will change my life. I took this class because I thought this was the direction in which God was leading me. But I realize now that this is not the case.

Thanks to everyone and especially those who have taught the class. I think it took writing this sermon to help me make some decisions about my future, and so I am grateful for the time I've spent with you.

God bless you as you continue.

Tried to call you a couple times, but you're chatting with someone. Won't be able to try later, as Eric just got home and we'll be heading out to eat somewhere.

I've been thinking of you.

You, too. I'm exhausted. Today was a hard day, and I've been running on empty all weekend.

I was talking to Don. ♥

If you can, call me tomorrow.

Hugs!
