But what I want to tell you about is something that is the true to miracle to me. You see, there would have been a day that if you had told me I would be the proverbial Pastor's Wife, I would have hyperventilated and hidden in a cave (because there are so many of those in Lubbock). I would have panicked that I wasn't worthy of the post and that I would surely disappoint, or worse yet embarrass my church somehow. But because of a perfectly timed journey that I have been on for months (and continue to be on) I know that it is exactly okay for me to be me. That my hope is in a Redeemer who is actively creating the very best version of me, and that is simply enough. That I don't have to pretend to be someone I am not. I don't have to act any certain way or appear to be someone who has her stuff together. All that is expected of me, is to be genuine and to be someone who seeks after Love Himself.
And because of this, I face our new life direction with excitement, hope, anticipation...
I am thankful for a God who cares more deeply about me than I could ever fathom and who has more for me than I could ever understand. And I am thankful to be shoulder to shoulder with a group of people who mirror that Love to me and my family everyday.
Let's do this!!!!
