It is time for another Tuesday Transformation.
I should have taken pictures of the kitchen transformation at church,
but I keep forgetting the camera when I head over there.
Maybe next Tuesday, I can share those with you.
We will have our first fellowship meal this weekend
and I hope the church family will enjoy the transformation.
I will talk about a change of mind.
I have been battling loneliness recently.
I enjoy peace and quiet,
but sometimes 10 hours a day is a bit rough.
Recently, I have missed some days for piano lessons,
and many of the folks at church have seemed busy or preoccupied.
When I explained the need to hubby,
of course, he understood -
even with his work companions,
he gets lonely too.
He hurt for me and was even ready to send me off to work
so that I could interact with others.
Here is where the transformation comes.
I knew that I should not be tied down to a job.
We had settled our convictions in this area years ago.
There are many ministries that in the home and church
that require my flexible schedule.
So ... I thought of a solution, I swallowed my pride, I left my comfort zone.
I told hubby that I would invite myself over to the homes of ladies in the church.
One each week.
I had my first visit today.
Three hours flew by ...
I think that not only did she meet my need,
but I met a need in my hostess' life that I did not know existed -
she craved companionship too.
I don't know if each visit will meet 2 needs,
but for today,
I am encouraged to keep stretching outside of my comfort zone.
