We were able to sneak away for a short cruise thanks to finally refinancing our house at current market rates. Whoot! Josh and I had a swell-full time thanks to hurricane Isaac. Awesome to experience the power of the Atlantic. It was wonderful. We got to rest, have uninterrupted conversations, experience new places, and new food together, just the two of us. The Bahamas were beautiful even though we were rerouted due to the storm. I wish our excursions hadn't been canceled tho. :(
I got back from the cruise and had about a week before flying off to Texas with my cousin. We went to be trained for the new software system our company will be transferring to next month. It has been a lot of work and fine-tuning. The trip was successful though. Somehow our brains, despite the migraines, were able to retain all they taught us. We came back to share with the rest of the team. We are only a week or two away from the big transition. Things should settle down for me after that... I hope! ;)
Celebrate Recovery is going well. Our team is in our the third book and really growing in transparency and intimacy. We are all very excited about what God is going to be doing in the next few months. Our first Golf fundraiser is in November and we are praying that God goes before us. He will prepare the way. Josh finished his masters and has launched his counseling practice. Right now he has to fit in clients at night around the other job until we can transfer him full-time into the campus pastor position.
A lot is going on and we are so thankful. We are holding onto our hats cause it's a wild ride when the Spirit leads. :)
We are getting closer to the Launch of Celebrate Recovery and Josh has opened up the Counseling Service of Lifeline. We have been able to raise up a leader for the Lifecoast Nursery ministry so we can step out of direct leadership in that ministry. This will allow us to concentrate more fully on the Lifeline Celebrate Recovery Ministry and Josh's Counseling Practice. We have several fundraisers in the works and are praying for God's continued provision as we move forward.
My Current Mantra
Walk humbly with God and do the work at your hands....
