Sunday is my Commissioning Service, I can honestly say that though I did dream of being a missionary when I was a little girl I never dreamed of my Commissioning Day. I guess I spent my little girl years dreaming of a wedding. Now at 30 I can honestly say I have spent the last year dreaming of this day, and not a wedding. My how things have changed. I feel like in a way this is a very similar experience. It is a ceremony to celebrate a commitment and a future. It is saying farewell to life as I have known it, and hello to a life that God has invited me into.
Also, like a wedding and like me there will be a new (though not pricey) dress and of course shoes!
I am so thankful to all of you who have helped me reach this point in my life. Thankful for the people that God has put along my path who have helped me to become the person God desired me to be. I am thankful to God for not giving up on me, for dreaming bigger dreams for me than I had for myself, and I am thankful that this day is one that I will get to share with so many loved ones.
In case you did not get an invite, please know that you are welcome to join me on my special day this Sunday June 6th 9:30am, at Felton Bible Church. With lunch following.
