Until the next time

The above picture is from a card MelanieJoy sent me.
I thought it was fitting for this post.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I will admit that I was praying that my having to log off would not happen.
But, it seems that God has other things in mind and I am o.k with that.
So, I just want to tell you all how much my life has been enriched by each of you.
How you have lifted my heart during days that would have been almost unbearable.
I have been encouraged to walk when my feet just wanted to stop and give up.
I have been blessed by the witness of your lives more than you will ever know.
For those who have not found our little section of our blogging world.....they have missed so much.

I consider you my sisters and I will miss hearing what is going on in your lives
and the lives of your families.
I want you to know that I will pray for you. I wish I could name you all so that you would know you are locked in my memory...but you know who you are. :)

Soon I will be back......Lord willing and we don't meet in heaven first. \o/!
I have such hope in our Lord that I know I will have fantastic things
to tell you about our journey.
And I look forward to the lessons He will teach me(and the lessons He will teach you) .
Lessons that will transform me into the one He has planned for me to be.
He and I will be able to spend so much more time with each other without the influence of the media that can so often distract me.
I do look forward to that.

So......behave. :)
Continue to love the Lord with all your heart ....all your soul....and all your strength.
Press in and don't let the world draw your eyes away from the One who is our hope.
As Dee says......Keep on, Keeping on!

I will be checking in the next few days but things will be very busy so I won't have time to post.

I'll check in later on as I have internet (like when I go to Mom's to work on our conference) and
when we go to TX for our conference I will check in then too.
They may not have cell phone service but they have wireless!

I love you guys!
You are a bright shinning light for our Father.
Keep on SHINNING!

Elgin had such a powerful word I thought I'd share. It has to do with the miracle of water to wine.

The guests had no clue to the pending crisis. Remember this is a party...wine...good wine is expected.

The only people who knew where those directly involved.

The soul chosen to follow out Jesus' order, take this cup of water and give it to the head guy is watching this miracle unfold. He knows its water in the cup...but somewhere along his walk the water turns to wine.

The miracle happens as you walk. Not everyone knows there's water in the cup and it's being turned to wine as you go.

That blessed me this morning. I'd been crying out for manifestation of His word. But the miracle is He knows and my water turns to wine as I walk. And none need be the wiser. As far as everyone else is concerned, I always had wine...and good wine at that.

Lov you and be encouraged. Water turns to wine as you go sweetie.

So it is really happening. I was hoping too that something would arise to keep you from having to log off. But not my will but Thy will be done, Lord. You will be sorely missed. But you will not be forgotten. Certainly not in my daily prayers. I look forward to any updates your sweet mom will give us. Jesus has something wonderful in store for you-I know sweet sister! So I say ditto- "Shine on!" Well done! Love ya!

Halfmoon Girl said...

I will miss you and look forward to hearing what new things God brings you to. Glad your mom can give us updates! Take care, you will be in my prayers. "behave"????- aaahhhh, do I HAVE to???

Denise said...

Is that comment by pastor lisa the most profound thing you have ever read? What a wonderful word from the Lord for you..... As you walk your water is turned into wine and not just wine but the best wine.... That blessed my heart as I read those words for you today... What a journey is before you as you sip the cup......Expect the wine of the promises of God begin to bring sweet taste to your palate!!!!!!!!

I will miss you..... but I will be watching for your return.

Melanie said...

I've not been looking forward to this. I even got a bit teary eyed as I read this post. But I know I'll be hearing from you as soon as you can possibly post again.

Praying for you!!

Denise said...

I am really going to miss you dear sweet sis. I am praying for God to greatly bless your journey ahead. May you smell the scent of His beautiful roses everywhere you go. I love you, thanks for leaving your heart prints all over my life.

Sharon,

You are going to be missed. I for one will miss your teachings, as you have brought me closer to God. Thank you for that and for your ministry here in blogland.

Godspeed, my friend. I will be praying for God and His angels to watch over you while you continue your journey and find the place where He wants you to be.

Yes, I would love visiting your plantations and I'm so glad that you enjoyed the photos of the nature walk. I wish you had been here with us to go along. You would have been most welcome.

Love and hugs,
Mary

I can't wait to have you as a neighbor. I wonder if NC knows what a blessing you are but I'm sure she will find out soon enough. It will take you a while to acclimate but if you need any help, let me know and I'll see what I can do. There's a lot of folks around here who have been here since the day they were born that I can ask.

Nise' said...

You will be missed my friend! Praying with confidence that He has it all worked out (whatever it may be)!.

Nicki said...

Well......I loved Pastor Lisa's thoughts!! I'm going to miss you WAY to much!! What will I do without all your input?? =) I'm praying for you and I can't WAIT to see where the Lord lands ya'll!! Maybe we'll get to visit soon!

Oh! This is bittersweet! On the one hand we don't want to see you go! But, on the other hand we know that there is a great adventure & a great blessing for your family, for you, that is waiting! SO, I guess that means that we must gracefully release you & pray God's richest mercy, goodness and grace to you and your sweet and precious family. May His divine light, love, and favor make a way for you, where it seemd like there was no way. May you enjoy this season and have much glory to give God as He perfects His plan and providence for you! May all your relationships sweeten & strengthen during this season!

LOVE Pastor Lisa & her husband's word! I LOVE that!

Keep shining my friend! VERY much looking forward to updates!
Maria

I will wait for your return there is no way I would not look for your return, I have been touched so much from your posts and teachings.
I have been off line for a few days and need to catch up on the old posts so off I go!
Love and prayers are with you Sharon.

Mimi's Toes said...
