As I shared with my readers earlier in the month, big changes were happening in my life. So, now I am confident I can share these changes with you.
I have worked for a great company over the last 16 years and truly imagined that I would still be at that company when I reached official retirement age(which is still quite a way off). After struggling with several medical issues that cause my body great pain and difficult in walking and moving, I started praying earnestly asking the Lord to lead me and guide me in making the decision to stay or leave.
I know that I made the right decision to resign earlier than planned. I have HIS peace and for the first time realize that having a paycheck isn’t all there is to life. I realize we all have bills to pay and yes, we need money to survive; but when you make budget cuts and rearrange your budget, you can do it. Am I scared? I can confidently say I have no fear. Which if you knew me at all and how I have always operated, you would understand my reluctance – at first – in understanding what God was telling me to do. I have never in all my life left a place of employment, without having something lined up to go to next.
I have always been very practical in that way. Always have had a backup plan; not this. time.
This time, I am trusting God to lead me where He wants me to go. I believe He is calling me into using my gifts of words to minister to others. So, with that being said, I am currently working on a book to encourage others and offer hope. I will continue to write this blog, not just to share Jesus with others, but because I feel this is a small part of His plan for me.
The end of this week will signify the end of one long chapter in my life and the beginning of a new one. As always, I can’t wait to see where God leads me!
May you be blessed and know the God Loves You–right where you are! Much love,

Hi Carlene, My prayer is that the Lord leads you and sustains you on this journey. He is strongest in our lives when we are weakest – 2 Corinthians 12:9

Thank you Tom. I have just finished writing a book of hope and encouragement. I know God is calling me to do something with my writing and it is now in the hands of my friends for feedback and revisions. Thank you so much for your prayers.
