Topic: The big move

Hi all, I haven't been on much recently. My wife, who has lukemia, and I have moved from NE PA to her father's place in Barhamsville, VA, which is west of Williamsburg. He dad is 86 and her daughter and son-in-law are here and her son and his family  live about 100 yards away and her sister lives 10 minutes away. So this is a good situation for her. I don't kow if I'll handle the heat very well or find a new church to pastor,or not it's all up to God right now.

Re: The big move

Welcome to the Old Dominion.  You will be able to stand the heat.  If not, head to the mountains for a bit.  I am heading to just east of Williamsburg for a few days vacation in June. 

Virginia's got a fair number of sinners despite the influence of the Moral Majority (said with tongue firmly in cheek).  I expect even if you don't find a church to lead, you'll be a tremendous pastoral influence on those around you.  Pastor isn't something you do.  It's something you are.  That said, I hope you find something so that you'll have an income. 

Best of luck.  Doing right by your wife when she's ill... that's a very good thing.

A generous action on your part, Butch, made for the best of reasons.

Re: The big move

It sounds like this is just what she needed, being close to her family.  It shows a tremendous amount of love on your behalf to make such a move.  God wiilling, it ends up as a good thing for you as well.  A/C... lots and lots of fake cool air my friend.
