And Today....

Three Joy Filled thoughts - Day Ten

1. Excited to watch God start up a deployment small group - complete with leaders and ideas.
2. Spending time with Christian sisters this evening was fantastic!  Loved the message as well
3. Thankful for a friend who stayed with me as I locked up the VERY DARK and VERY LARGE new campus....goodness! No outside lights at all.

Some days this is simply as good as it gets. This makes me smile. I am thankful Michael set up the clothes lines we brought from Japan. It makes me happy to see laundry on them - and it reminds me of Misawa. I love, love, love getting outside for little breaks during school. Viva la laundry.

We started our Tapestry of Grace for the year. I can hardly believe Arielle is a senior this year.  I am AMAZED to realize this is our 26th year of schooling.

And after schooling and hanging laundry I ran to the base for the next 8.5 hours. I met with a gal who will be leading our deployed spouses small group. I met a couple of gals at the new campus so they could set up for this evenings LiFT(Ladies in Fellowship Together).  Cynthia and I finished cleaning out the LAST PWOC closet and moving the stuff to our new room in the facility.  I loved LiFT  - fun to see more women than was originally expected, great food, great fellowship and a great word from Ros. We are to imitate Jesus in spiritual formation, routine faithfulness and commitment to God's purposes!

Home late...early morning tomorrow with school and much to accomplish....

Choosing Joy!

I'm just thinking beings as you and Mike will soon be transitioning out of the military........... DO THEY HAVE ANYTHING LIKE GROUPS TO HELP YOU ALL?
