You are probably scratching your head and wondering, "what now?"
"Did she climb a tall mountain?
Run a race?
Win the Lottery?" (no picture to describe how amazing THAT would be!)
Well, no, nothing quite that exciting or exhausting or amazing...but I did something that I've been wanting to do for a LONG time...probably for about 65 years or something like that! I finally took the plunge and gave my notice that I am actually going to.....drum roll, drum roll...
|I expect to be doing a LOT more of THIS in the near future...|
Taking lots of pictures...and smiling a lot more!!!
Now, just please say a prayer for me to survive the next few weeks as I train someone to take my place and clean out my five and a half years worth of stuff from my office. (Click HERE for more about these pictures)
Pray that I will leave on a positive note, and that God will be with me as I embark on this new adventure in my life. I know that the Lord has been with me throughout these past years (and I am most thankful for His Presence in my life both then and now)...and all the years prior...so why should I doubt that He will be with me when I take this big step and leap into the great "unknown" of retirement?
I do have concerns...mostly financial issues...I don't have a big cushy pension to fall back on...I don't even have a small one...so the government better not mess with my Social Security and Medicare...or I'll be in a real pickle.
But my God is bigger than any government or any retirement plan. He has sustained me thus far in life, and I have no reason to fear that He will ever change His mind about that.
