In a good place

In addition to our brief taste of Heaven during Homecoming at Milligan, I came to a realization about life in the Todd house. I know I’ve known this for quite some time but I was finally able to admit it to myself and say it with some confidence.

We’re in a good place.

The big kids have adapted well to all areas of middle school life. Mihret is loving Kindergarten and has special services available to her that would not have been as easily accessible if we still lived in Cowan.

We’re in a good place.

Christy is working at her dream job; providing Special Education services in a Christian school environment. I’m really liking the direction our company is taking. I get the opportunity to help blaze a new trail as we strive to remain leaders in our industry.

We’re in a good place.

Show Hope Celebration

For the last 10+ years, or hearts have been drawn towards new church work. That’s why I enrolled at ESR ECS to begin with. That’s why we became so invested in Sonlife/Southside/Summit Church. That also makes me wonder why I wound up pastoring a church that was more than 110 years old. But that’s a moot point for the purposes of this conversation. It’s probably worth addressing at some point. But not now. It was what it was.

Because of the soft spot in our hearts for new church startups, we knew the moment our pastor announced the vision that we would be participants in the establishment of a new satellite campus of our church. After a year or so of being pretty gun shy about committing to any type of ministry involvement other than the occasional preaching gig, it has been exciting to participate in this new effort and to watch people come to Jesus for the first time.

We’re in a good place.

Don’t get me wrong. We’ve had our share of uncertainty, worry, and heartache since moving here. But even with the difficulties that come with life, we have a strong Life Group and a growing group of friends to lean on. I’m glad we’re somewhere we can share our journey with others who rejoice when we rejoice and hurt when we hurt. I firmly believe that God has just begun to write the opening paragraphs of our next chapter here. And I think I can safely say that it’s going to be a roller coaster ride. I’m looking forward to what’s next.

Because we’re in a good place.
