I told my son-in-law today that I wish I was younger so I can stay in my job longer. I think I’ve been saying this recently.

At the interview for this job 7 years ago, I told the search committee that I don’t see myself working beyond 5 years. I never wanted the pressure of working in ministry. I thought ministry as a job would take all the fun out of ministry.

But at the ministry training this past Saturday where I had to articulate the vision for the children ministry, I realized how much I believe in the vision. I realized I want to see it through. I wish I were younger.

And talking to my SIL made me realized how God has put me here for such a time as this. “I don’t need job security. I can tell the pastors what I want. If they want the children ministry to go in a direction that I don’t agree with, I can just quit.” No one has disagreed with me. So ministry has been fun.

God is so good to me.

President’s Day allowed us to get together with both granddaughters. Went to the park, picnic, leisurely stroll. I remember how it was to pack the diaper bag and all the paraphernalia just for a few hours out.

If I had 1 year to live, I’d spend my time with my kids and grandkids. Oh, and my husband too, haha. Freudian slip – shows what I always tell people – I’m a much better mom than a wife. So now I tell all young moms, don’t ignore your husband.
