Beautiful things can be created in nine months. With time and love and prayers, you can create something beautiful where there was nothing.
It has been nearly nine months since we moved here to Washington to start a church from scratch. We came here knowing no one. And in that time we have made friends, had a logo and website designed, had street signs created, we designed, handed out or mailed out nearly 100,000 flyers and postcards, and bought everything from a sound system to a coffee brewer to baby toys. We prayed and labored and gave everything we had to make this happen.
Isn’t that how it is with a labor of love?
It has been a long nine months, but we are excited to finally be moving on to the next phase of our life here in Washington — actually having a church we can invite people to on Sunday instead of just plan for and talk about it every week! If you are in the area I hope you’ll come visit us sometime. I’d love to meet you.
Beautiful things can happen when we look past the impossible, overcome the obstacles, dream about what COULD BE, and then make the effort to create it. All things are possible.
What is YOUR labor of love?
Thanks for your patience with me. I’ve been juggling a lot of labors of love! I apologize for being late to Beautiful Life Friday today — my computer has been being used by others for creating promotional items and I can’t always blog when I want to! I’ve really missed visiting you all the past couple of weeks!
Have a lovely weekend and don’t forget to stop and take in the small and beautiful every day moments. Feel free to link up a beautiful life post or share some moments in the comments.
PS. No that is not my house, it is that dreamy one I showed you all awhile back. I adore that house. It is a beautiful thing. The owner lovingly built it herself, from the ground up! Truly a labor of love!
