The Time has come

Well, got ’em all done! That Easy-off is amazing stuff (and this is NOT a sponsored post.)

Isn’t it amazing to wake up and see all those leaves covering the ground? Especially when such a short time ago, they were on the trees!

So how does one begin such an “historic” day? Our Last Sunday of 32 years! I’m thinking it won’t really be that memorable… just another day…  (Oh, except that I’m going to try “running” for thirty-five minutes!)

So, I should probably take back some of the things I’ve said recently, about my church. After all, I/we really could be wrong. A few days ago I used the analogy from my morning reading, of the story of the 12 spies, and how when Israel heard about God’s anger about their fear of conquering the Land of the Giants, they changed their mind–but it was too late. Well, what if instead of the “too late” focus, it should be the fact that only TWO of God’s people believed and were obedient. Like the two people left at our church who are continuing on doing everything.

Nevertheless, there DOES come a time…

“There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven.

  • A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.
  • A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to rebuild.
  • A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance.
  • A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
  • A time to search and a time to lose. A time to keep and a time to throw away.
  • A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak up.
  • A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)

Some people think it’s still time to “gather stones” and “rebuild” I guess, “to keep”. Our time of “search” is coming up. Sometimes you just have to let go

And that time has come, for us.

    Woke up this morning thinking of you guys. I remember our our last day and how strangely non-eventful it was, although I guess in our case fewer people knew we were leaving. God will be with you as you go forward today.
