Looking Ahead

Thanks for all the encouragement from so many of you. I've gotten a number of emails and messages and you have no idea how much it means to me. I have spent a good deal of time trying to see where God wants me and what I should be doing. Right now I am in good discussions with several churches. I am sure God will open the right door and let me know where He wants me. If none of these work out I will start again. At this point I have decided I have enough irons in the fire so to speak. I think it is best if I let these opprotunities play out before I look to other ones.
I normally wouldn't share something very personal, but I will now. My mother is having some serious heart problems. She has seen multiple doctors and they have all told her the same thing. There is nothing they can do at this point and it is unlikely she will live much beyond the end of the year. As you can imagine, my whole family is emotionally spent with the news about my mother. Given my circumstances, I have been up and down a great deal. Your continued prayers for me and my family are greatly appreciated.
