I hadn't known her very long, but she listened to my heart. The holy moment was thoughtful and came at just the right time.
Maybe I'm trying to do too much in just a short time. Okay, after looking at several "life event stress checklists", maybe it's not too much or too big in the grand scheme of things.
Not to worry, Tom and the kids are fine, no natural disasters, no one's been arrested or incarcerated, and the cat didn't die. Still, it's been enough stuff to make me think some days I've got PMS, post-partum, and post-menopausal whatever going on at the same time.
Dear Reader, I hope memes for my word, NEVERTHELESS, are meaningful to you this year. I'd love to share a little more about my personal one word for 2019, Nevertheless.
Recently, Tom and I went to a wedding for one of our absolutely favorite families. No matter what the event, three generations of women make everyone feel welcome and show them a great time!
Our younger family friend was getting married. The wedding was tender and sweet, but it was what happened afterwards that became a holy moment.
The last two years before I retired last spring, I was outrageously blessed to work with two godly women. Our backgrounds were very different, and sometimes so were our viewpoints.
Still, we manage to share with each other about a wide range of topics over lunch each day. Who knew a casual conversation could blossom into a holy moment?
The wall around Jerusalem was finished, and the Temple was started. Now that the Law had been read to all the people, it was a day of reckoning.
The people gathered in sackcloth and ashes to confess their sins and repent. Then a decision had to be made.
Honestly, Dear Reader, I don't live at Walmart! You've got to admit, if you're into people watching it's a great venue. It's also a treasure trove of holy moments!
Tom and I were only going to dart in after church for a few groceries. We both had projects waiting at home, so we split up to finish faster.
