New Adventure Weeks 2-3: Searching for the right door, saying good byes

I love this picture of the eggs! My friend Cindy gave me a plate of farm eggs last night at a BBQ, recalling the joy I would have at her fresh farm eggs left in Sunridge green room snack table. She also recalls the sadness I expressed when that gravy train stopped due to coyotes having her chickens for lunch.

For every beginning there first has to be an ending. The BBQ last night I spent with a few of my worship team friends from my former church was bittersweet and meaningful. The joy is that these relationships may be ending in one way but are also beginning in another as they pray with me about the next door God has for me and my family to walk through.

Bittersweet is a good word. In times of transition, we have to grieve that ending before we can be excited about the future. Actually, I think it is not so neatly packaged that way. Which is why bittersweet seems to be a good word right now.

How is your ending and beginning in your life’s current transition?

  1. Another timely post, Rich. It seems that every year I experience change of some kind. Some of it is profound, others more subtle. But I notice it. My approach is to simply weather the storm, handle what I can, and be prepared to accept what I can’t. I don’t know if that’s the best way to handle it, but it’s what I do.

  21. In April of this year I was fired from my last church. Within four hours, I was on the worship team in my new church. They knew that I was on thin ice and were chomping at the bit to get me and my family in their body.
    God has been amazing ever since. The new position is volunteer, the income that we lost from losing the church job has been more than made up through other adventures. We didn’t even need that money from the church job.

    It has been a fun, and sometimes hard walk. But God has been showing us that he is faithful.
