Fish out of water syndrome

I am feeling a lot like the fish above.  Transitioning back into ministry on the field is always interesting.  I keep telling myself that God is in control and I just need to wait.  In the mean time I would appreciate your prayers.  I am so grateful for your emails and notes of encouragement.  If you haven't sent an email or note, HOW COME NOT?  Just kidding!  The news everywhere shows most of the world is feeling like me lately so I imagine you all have your ?'s too!  I read 1 Samuel 26 today.  Before I tell what I learned, maybe you could share your thoughts with me.

Been sitting here making bracelets for the leaders of the ladies ministry.  Today I get to meet with last year's leaders and the new ones.  I have soooo much I want to share with them.  Today I will ask them if they would be willing to meet with me on a monthly basis. 
My family is pretty much settled in.  Just a few little jobs to do yet and the apartments will be set for another term. 
We are looking for a location for the coffee ministry.  I have tons of ideas, but am trying to let the kids take the reins from the beginning.   Not always easy when they have ideas that cost alot or sound too teenagerish for my taste...I think I am officially stationed on the other side of the generation gap!

Need a "peace and remember His goodness break?"

Wow does this provoke wonder or what?  Praise God for His wonderful creation.   Praise Him for all He blesses us with.  Praise Him for tiny little hummingbirds that stop us in our tracks!
