Wednesday Wishes

  1. I wished that I could do a Blog Post w/o editting my images first.
  2. I wished that I could post images w/o the story behind the images.
  3. I wished that I photographed in low resolution so that I didn't have to convert to low res files...okay no I don't, but I wished that it was simplier or quicker to do.
  4. I wished that I wasn't such a perfectionist (back to #1) so that I would not have to edit so much before posting.
  5. I wished that I was a better blogger like Melinda or Nicki and stayed current with my blog posts. Okay, there are others (like you) who do much better that I do lately, but those two currently pop in my mind because lately they've had daily posts. Now I don't think I would have daily posts because I don't have a little one here every day any more, but between the 3 blogs that I have, I could have somethingon a regular basis.
  6. I often wish that I wasn't such a detailed person. I think then I would better at this whole blogging thing. I have the thoughts in my mind (sometimes I even start blog posts in my mind), I have the photos and I definitely want to share it all. Now if I can just get better at this.

Now do you have any wishes that you'd like to share? Please comment or blog about it! Maybe I will make this a little regular thing like NOT ME MONDAY!

This is our pastor,
Dan and his wife, Nicki,
and their sweet little boy, Jonah.
Tonight is our last service with them. I could do several blog posts about this and I could go on and on. I am very sad to see them leave our church, but I am also very glad for them. I totally understand that God has a new plan for them...okay it's new to us and them, but not to God. I praise God that I met Nicki and Dan. I thank God for sending them into my lives just when He did. He always knows what we need, when we need it, even before we do.
I look forward to the message tonight but I dread saying good-bye to them. I know we'll stay connected through modern means such as facebook, emails and blogging, but it's still a bit sad seeing them leave. I honestly think I've learned more from both Dan and Nicki from messages at church to following their blogs than anyone that I've known with the exception of a few very close friends, my spouse and my parents (but you get the idea).
Dan, Nicki and Jonah, We love y'all dearly. I pray God blesses your new church like you've blessed the people here. I know we haven't been members of the church as long as some have, of course, some were there before y'all came, but I can honestly say that I don't think we would have ended up making First Baptist Vidalia our church home had it not been for your service to God and to the church!
Thank you for making a difference in our lives!

Besides you will be seeing us again. Are you sure about offering us a place to stay?
