I reached Medicare age in November and celebrated the life God had given me, content with teaching Bible study to junior high students, mentoring a young mom with special needs children, visiting family and friends, grateful for my retirement life. I had no idea that God had yet another adventure in mind for me.
In early December I received my troubled teenage grandson into my home. Although I feel completely inadequate for this responsibility, I have come to accept that God has ordained it and He will be my strength and stay. So I told my son that I will accept this mission by leaning hard on God so that He can accomplish for my grandson what he needs. And I will depend on the Lord for the love, wisdom, patience, and more love I need to do this work God has planned for me.
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
