Saying Goodbye to Working Full-Time at Grace

Cinco de Mayo was celebrated in our house this year but for a different reason. It was my last day at work! It was an exciting day spending time with some of the secretaries I have been working with for the last 4 years and wrapping everything up.
I was so overwhelmed the whole day by God's kindness. He graciously allowed me to work to put Andrew through seminary and I know I was only able to do it by God's strength because it was hard to keep up with sometimes. He allowed me to work with great people, learn a lot about different ministries, and to learn to rely on Him daily. He also gave me a great encouraging husband that lovingly supported me the whole way through.
It still has not hit me that I get to be a full-time wife yet, but I think it will sink in soon! He is good and has given me the desire of my heart.

Lunch with the secretaries at Aroma Cafe-so good! Thanks ladies for spending time with me on my last day!

My workspace-call me crazy for taking this picture but I always try to take pictures that I think it would be fun to show our kids some day. I won't miss the pink cabinets!

Dear Kim,

I rejoiced to read this blog! Over the past months I have watched your commitment to Andrew in this area, that you worked so faithfully even though it wasn't always easy. I watched as you did trust in and rely on God, and He blessed you richly. I'm so proud of you.

Love,
Karen
