The Office

Today I will be spending most of my day at our ministry house, there's still a lot of work to do there. I plan to move into the new office today, so I have to make choices as to what goes and what doesn't. The challenge is fitting into one room, instead of a house! The new office will be shared by others on our team, and used for groups, meetings, etc. I don't know what it will be like, but I know it will be different.
Yesterday, as I worked at our ministry house, I thought a lot about the memories that come with the house. Good memories. The rock patio that my son built, the deck my husband and son built, the fence my husband and son built. The garden boxes we have enjoyed so much, and the grapes we use every year to make grape juice. I fondly remembered Stinky Dog and the day she was buried under our cherry tree. Also, I thought about the day my son got stuck in the chestnut tree and I had to rescue him, or the day my daughter was brought home from China, on Thanksgiving,  and our sons had a Thanksgiving feast ready for us to eat. Then, all the friends and all the events we have enjoyed at this house. The love, the relationship, the healing. It has been a delightful place to rest and gather. It has been fun, and I will miss it very much.
God continues to tell me that all I need to hang onto, is Him. He has plans for the ministry, I simply need to trust in Him and let Him work.
Jesus, Say That Again, You have plans to prosper Your ministry, I will wait and be still while You work through me and others.
