Love and Friends

Change is never an easy thing, and for about a month I've refrained from mentioning the moving on of two very dear friends of mine due to the sensitivity of the situation. But now that things are getting fairly back to normal I thought I would post the pics from the fun Saturday luncheon that we shared last week.

It was sometime in March when Pastor Jeremiah told me that the Lord was moving his ministry to TX. To say I was shocked would be an understatement, but I would rather see him and Shannon where the Lord wants them, rather than where I want them. Plus I knew that I would be in more than capable hands with Pastor Sargent. However, it is sad to see such good friends move on. Which is why last Saturday the ladies of Bible Baptist Church got together as held a Birthday/going away luncheon for Shannon. Here are some pictures from that fun day. Also if you head on over to Just Passing Thru you can see the videos of the song that we sung and the skit that we performed for the enertainment. Sherri got a much better view of us than my video got.
Anyway, here are some pics from that day. . .

Some Ladies at the luncheon

Alyssa and Kali made the cake

It's not a proper luncheon without games

Ladies trying to figure out the answers

There was a relay race

Ready, Set, Go. . .

The candles were lit

Shannon got all but one out

As I stated earlier, it's sad to see friends move on but the peace that comes from everyone being of one accord with the changes that God wants to see take place is indescribable.

John 14:27 ~ Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

There was a lot of love there that day shared by many friends! Love you Shannon

I think everyone's feeling a little sad/thrilled for them. Mixed emotions...Chris and I both are excited for them but realize that "going home" just won't be the same again.

I'm sure it will be different, especially since you weren't here to see all the changes. His ways are not our ways and I think it's the unknown that we get more anxious over than anything (I know it's like that for me). I hope that you all will get to have a chance to get together soon. Just think, now you have another vacation destination:)
