Just Some Random Thoughts

I’m back home this evening after a weekend up on Petersburg, VA with Libby at my brother’s place.  That would be Mike and Debbie.  I got us free tickets to the drag races across the road practically from where they live. . .the Viriginia Motorsports Park.  We got there Friday evening and stayed till around two this afternoon.  We got back home with one stop at the Cracker Barrel in Greenville for dinner with Libby’s daughter, Beverly.  She started crying when we started talking.  Her boyfriend had just texted her with a breaking up message.  I feel sorry for her.

Lib and I both missed being in church this morning.  We have become attached to this group of people at First Christian Church in Richlands.  There’s always something to do with them.  I’ve taken up playing drums in their Saturday evening contemporary worship service.  It’s interesting to say the least.  I hadn’t picked up a set of stick in at least six years.   Maybe more.  I have done things here that I would not have done five years ago.  I was a “disciple” in their Maundy Thursday service where I portrayed a disciple in their re-enactment of the Last Supper.   In all it was quite moving.  Then, Easter morning Lib and I attended the Sunrise Service and later had breakfast at my old church.  I feel God has brought me full circle now.  I feel his Spirit working not only in me, but Libby as well.

Take this for instance.  Wednesday evening the pastor made an announcement that some of the pew seat bottoms had been taken out for reupholstering and there were more needing new covering than anticipated by about an extra $1k.  Immediately God spoke to me to give $100.  On the way home I told Libby about it and she was a little upset that I didn’t consult with her, but later admitted God had spoken the same figure to her, but she, knowing me as she does, thought to herself, nah, Jim wouldn’t go for that and then began to reason lower numbers.  But when she saw me write a check for $100 she was a bit taken back by it.  She had no idea I would do such and told me what she had heard God say.  I told her I was thrilled that she heard God speak the same amount to her as I heard.  We have been tuned like this for quite some time even down to ordering off a menu when we eat out somewhere.  We think very much alike.

I have court next week.  I can only hope that I heard God speak to me concerning it.  Divorce is something that needs to be finalized.  All is done except for the final decree.  He spoke to me not to worry about it.  He was giving me favor in the matter.  I leave it up to Him.

Time for me to hit the bed.  Four comes early.

I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.
