Changes Happen

Dear Friends,

God has a way of intervening in one's life and such is the situation with mine. For almost three years my husband and I have been ministering in a conflicted church environment. It has left us weary and exhausted but we have also grown through the experience. As of Sunday, November 14 we are no longer part of this congregation. In the meantime God had opened up another ministry opportunity for me as Executive Directore of a pregnancy care center.

What this means for On Crooked Knees is a needed time to regroup and pray. It doesn't seem possible, but I've been writing weekly devotionals for On Crooked Knees for almost three years! Thank you for joining me on the journey.

I'm going to take time off from writing for the next two weeks. Your prayers are appreciated and hopefully on December 1 you'll see a new devotional in your e-mail box or on this site. I am open to however God leads. May you all have a Thanksgiving filled with visions of all the blessings you have received this past year - even if it has been a year of challenges!

From time to time, I drop by and am always inspired by your writings. How exciting that you have chosen the opportunity to minister in a pregnancy care center. I have volunteered for a little over 9 years in my local center.
May our God continue to give you wisdom in all your endeavors.
Enjoy your two week break and I look forward to hearing more from you again in early December!

Your blog has been an inspiration, and more than once your post has spoken directly to whatever lies in my path.

May your Thanksgiving also be a day filled with visions of God's blessings. Thank you for sharing your life. Sometimes it's just time to be still...
