Bouquets of Heaven’s Flowers

For those of you who have been following our journey, you know that we are in the ‘countdown to departure’ {12 days!!} for our big move overseas.

These days are filled with packing and heads-spinning to remember it all, but the quiet moments are full of the big changes ahead and deeper still the partings and last memorable times with those we love here.

Today I share some perspective amidst these transitions that are an inevitable part of our calling to ministry, and more a life of surrender to wherever our Good God leads.  Yesterday, the pastor talked about those things for which there is ‘no skipping over’ in our lives.  For me, this is facing the grief of leaving those I love in such a way that neither denies the pain of it nor hardens the heart and plays the superlative martyr who wears her cross as identity.

I am privileged to share these thoughts at a blog and facebook community called ‘The Pastor’s {or Ministry} Wife’s Garden.’  If you are a pastor’s or ministry wife called to partner with your husband in the work of the kingdom {whether full-time or part-time}, I invite you to join this community on facebook and follow the blog.

Now, would you please hop on over where I share about Picking Heaven’s Flowers for the Journey?  Thanks for joining me and I pray that the LORD might show you something of your own heart’s journey in the transitions and changes I know we all walk through.
