Well, I took a couple of years off of my life today by eating some chicken fried bacon….but O was it good!
The Coates family is in the midst of a lot of different emotions. We are so excited, unbelievably excited, about our present and future move to lead FBC Coppell. Yet at the same time, we have (and are welcoming) the sad emotions of having to let go of so many wonderful relationships that we have built here in the O.C.
I saw a friend at Starbucks (I wonder how many times that phrase is blogged on a daily basis) and was talking to him about the move and everything. I told him that moving and saying “good-bye” was a hazard of the job. We know it going in to each situation that God has prepared for us. We know that more than likely, at some point God will move us on to another task….but it is still worth building the relationships with people. We need relationships and each one of these brings glory to God.
We know that all of our relationships will change…but never end and that brings great joy to our hearts!
