Day 291 in making life changes to be healthier in mind, body and spirit when I meet up with Mickey Mouse at Magic Kingdom
Today’s plan was to submit my letter of retirement at work. I am retiring from my job as secretary at St. James Lutheran Church. Here is part of my retirement letter:
As you may know, I have recently been through a bout of cancer. In the process of being diagnosed and treated, it was found that I have several other health issues. These issues make it impossible to perform my job in a timely and efficient manner. So it is with some regret, but with more hope for the future, that I wish to retire from my position as Church Secretary as of December 31, 2015. I turn 60 in December, and I wish to spend my “golden years” writing and pursuing opportunities to volunteer as I am led.
Wow! This is huge! I believe with all my heart that this is the Lord’s leading. I feel such a peace about it. It’s nerve-wracking because our health insurance is through the church, but I will pursue our options and keep praying about it. I never suspected when I became a card-carrying Democrat supporting Obamacare, that I might soon be using it. 🙂 I sure am glad it’s in place!
I so look forward to not having to drive to and from work in the snowy, icy winter weather. AND I have three book ideas, that I am anxious to have the time to work on. I am so excited about what God has in store for this next phase of my life!
Meet you at the Kingdom!
BTW: I have the most supportive husband! He is my soul-mate, my best friend, my true love. He is an amazing man of God, and I am so grateful for him! Thank you, Jesus!
