I am still beaming from last night’s small group. It’s always neat when new people show up and check out the group, and last night’s visitors were no exception. It was a great night!!! Conversation was rich, ideas shared were thought provoking, and authenticity was present. Looking back, it is amazing to see the growth that has happened not only on an individual level, but as a whole on these Monday nights. I am blown away by this group, by the individuals that are constantly teaching me and showing me what it is like to be part of a loving, giving and authentic community.
I could not be more excited about the new series at PCC, IMPROV: Life Unscripted. We kicked it off last week, and I was completely floored at how God used Beth Stoddard to share such a powerful word. It was creative, captivating, and challenging. Beth delivered the message with such passion, heart and soul. And God’s been using her words to stir in my heart this week. If you missed it, check it out—you won’t be disappointed! http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/15634694.
I know I have said it already, and perhaps I am just swept away, but how much I love it, or maybe it is the overwhelming joy of knowing you are exactly where God intended you to be, but I LOVE POWHATAN! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore the city, the culture, the business, the diversity, and that will always be a part of me. I had huge doubts and fears when Powhatan came up on the radar, but now, there is something unexplainable every time that I drive home. I am able to stop, able to rest and able to reconnect. There is an all consuming peace. It’s new, it’s life giving, and once again all I can do is stand in awe of God’s love and provision.
I adore being an aunt. With moving, the past two months have been consumed with packing, painting, cleaning, unpacking, painting, organizing, cleaning, decorating, etc. and I’ve missed TOO MUCH time in this little girl’s life. It doesn’t help that she lives about 5 hours away. I could not be more excited to head down to NC to visit next weekend. I hear she LOVES the pool and already has her first tooth. I may be bias, but I think she is stinking cute, and you better believe more pictures to come!
4th of July is coming up, and who knew that Powhatan had so much going on? J Being the new kid in town, I need help. Where is the best place in Powhatan to celebrate the 4th?
Have a Happy Tuesday Folks!!!
And for all of you who prayed for me last week, thank you, thank you, thank you! Hope to share my experience soon.
Philippians 2:13 For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
