TTC Tuesday

The Beacon On The Fridge


Well, folks, it’s Tuesday and I’m back – with a skip in my step, nonetheless!The past week has been a wild ride – to say the least. To tell this story, I’ll take you back in time a bit.

Several years ago…

{That’s supposed to be the ‘back in time’ sort of dream sequence…}

My grandmother in New Jersey (Hi Grandma!) took a trip to Maine, and sent me this gorgeous post card…

It was definitely this lighthouse (above), but not this particular picture. I loved it (and of course, the sweet note by grandmother wrote on the back), and kept it on my refrigerator for the longest time.

When Craig and I were dating, one of the first times he ever visited my (then) condo, he saw the postcard on the fridge and said, “Hey, where did you get this?” to which I repliedย that my grandmother had sent it to me from her trip to Maine. He, then, told me he had given the same exact picture to his mother from his trip (flight for work) to Portland, ME.

I didn’t think much of it at the time, but when I missed the church I was trying to navigate to and ended up a mile or two down the road, with the ocean right in front of me, and this very lighthouse to my left…heading back to the church for my interview, I felt a sense of peace…

If you’re extremely confused at the moment, let me enlighten you:

moving to maineCraig will be flying out of Portland and I will be the Youth Minister for St. Bartholomew’s in Cape Elizabeth, as well as (prayers please!!!!!!!!!! I’m in the final stages of interview!) working with the mentally disabled to help them attain more independent living skills, and of course, continuing school!

So, today’s “Thank You” to our Lord is for His guidance! All along the way, this step (LEAP) of faith has had His Hand on it…and He isย truly answering our prayers!! We are so excited for this new season of life and for all that Maine has in store for us!!

Please pray for our relocation!! It’s coming up soon – the middle of next month!

Well, time to head out the door and head home…and continue packing!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Wahoo!!!

P.S. Does anyone want to volunteer to help us move? ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Pier, I am so happy for you. You have been such a great addition at work, and I’m not sure I’ve come across someone there with a kinder, more appreciative attitude. You leaving will be a huge void, but I wish you and your husband all of the best, and I hope we can stay in touch!!!
