I'm skeered....




Hi friends...

Well, Wednesday is the BIG day. The door officially closes to the past and the future begins. If you followed the story of me leaving ministry and our church, then you know how the story ends.....or begins. You may scroll down and find the story in 3 parts.

I begin a brand spankin' new job this week and I'm so very excited. And, just a tad bit scared to. Change is so blooming hard sometimes. And, for me, right now....I'm losing some of my availability to the kids and that is hurting my momma's heart. But, then I'm given a slap dose of reality that "people have been working for ages and sometimes can't pick up their kids from school so get over it Fran."

All the details are worked out. I'm a big girl now. My kids are older, so after school isn't such a weird thing for me. Except for momma won't be there. *tears welling up in eyes.*

But, you know what??

My heart remembers how God quickly provided for our family and He will provide in the details that I'm scared of.

He is a beginning, middle, and end God so I think I'll be ok.

And, if you can....would you pray for me and our family as we transition into this new aspect of life?

I pray God's sweetest blessings over each and every one of you!!

Hugs,
Fran

If that doc and his staff only knew what a blessing is headed their way tomorrow. You are gonna rock their socks off. I am SO HAPPY FOR YOU.
You have done a good job with the boys so far. They will be FINE with this transition. And I know you and you will cherish the time y'all have together even more now. God isn't gonna give you this opportunity and allow your family to fall apart underneath you. Keep trusting. Keep your unwavering faith. You are on the palm of His hands and He will continue to protect you.
Love you!

Fran-
I met you for a moment in Memphis and have read your story over the past couple of weeks. I just wanted you to know I am praying for you and your transition. If you are anything in work life like you were when I saw you in Memphis, I know without doubt you are going to do great. God's blessings on you!!

Praying for you my sweet Siesta friend! I am totally allergic to change, so I understand being "skeerd"! But I also know that you listen to and follow Him, and He will be there with you!

Blessings

Love and prayers!

Think about this - I bought some new creamer that is supposed to make my coffee taste like a latte. Granted, it stays in the fridge so it'll stay home,but still...

Oh and I thought my word verification was BOWEL - wow am I glad it's actually lowel. Phew!

Inksstillwet said...

Will definitely be praying for you, sweetie, and you're going to do just fine! I wish I was there to give you a big hug and tell you how hard it was taking that step when mine were babies. I've worked their entire life and not one single day is easy, but God reminds you He is with them even when you can't be. Keep praising Him for the time He did have you there and thanking Him that He's given you a new step to take of dependence on Him!
You're going to do an incredible job on your new adventure and don't ever forget "if ___________, then God!"
Love, Amy
