MAY I INTRODUCE my mentor, Rev. Dr. Kenneth Isom. He is the reason I continued to believe that God had a plan for me after the issues presented in my last two blogs. (Ken’s Dr. degree is as a Veterinarian. That made us compatible; I was not dumber than a dog.)
ABOUT 2006 I STARTED working at the Bridge AG church. They sort of made me an associate of an Associate. Ken had charge of several ministries at the church; I helped specifically in the Home Ministry for those who could not longer come to the church. Basically they were homebound, in assisted living, or in rest homes. I thought of them as my Sage Isle people. Get the connection the Bridge/Isles. And they were sage/wise people.
THIS DEVELOPED INTO other services for the Senior members of the church. Especially in areas of fellowship. We had bus trips. I published a monthly eight page colored newsletter which we mailed out to over two hundred people. I delivered Sunday DVD’s.
THIS BACKGROUND INFO is given because I want to stress how much reason I have for my admiration for Ken Isom. I used to tell him that I only knew one person who was his equal; that was my son, Carl. Now that is high praise! I wasn’t quite old enough to be Ken’s mother, but close to it!
WE HAD A TUESDAY morning meeting called the Prime-timer’s. Ken had a recurring theme to drill into us. We could choose to refire, not retire. During those Tues. mornings, he quite often suggested that we become bloggers. I had no idea what he meant by blogging; didn’t figure I needed to know.
AFTER MY CRISES on June 30, 2013, I found myself without health or income for continuing the kind of thing I had been doing.
SO NOW IT WAS TIME TO REFIRE AND BLOG. With the Lord as my teacher and Ken as my prodder, I started blogging in October, 2014. He was over to visit this week, thus the picture. He still doesn’t know how to blog. I hope he will take an hour to come back and let me show him. If so, I will do a blog giving you his link.
AND THAT, MY BLOGGING FRIENDS, IS HOW I FOUND MY WAY INTO Y0UR BLOGGER CLOUD! 😀
Amen. Aren’t we blessed! I see new works from you and Paul as you refuse to retire, except to the extent of refiring for this coming chapter of your lives. I liked seeing the picture of your drama group. Go, girl, go.
This week I’m spending recovering, but will be Back at it again soon. Have a happy 4th❤️🇺🇸
God bless and your faithfulness. Yes, I am at that age now. Refire and not retire.
I know you can anticipate new adventures in relationships and knowledge in your future. Watch for the open doors; they do not appear very large sometimes. The door might be small with a vast field reaching beyond. Exciting times.
