All is well!

The Well

I’ve (once again) had a good reason for my lengthy silence. Sunday May 31st was the last service of our church, The Well. For a bit more info on this, click here to read my husband’s blog.

As you can imagine, it was a tough week, breaking the news to our Leadership Team, our kids, and the church. It was not a decision lightly reached, but it was one bathed in prayer and accompanied by a deep sense of peace. We have since talked to friends who expressed concern about our emotional well-being. For all of you who love us in this way, rest assured we are doing wonderfully. We are completely at peace and have no sense of failure. Even though we never thought that when we came to plant The Well, it would only be for 3 years, God knew and we are glad He didn’t share that tidbit of information with us, otherwise no way would we have done it! We’d have found every excuse – and Scripture! – in the book to support our opposition! As it is, we are pained because it feels like having to make the decision to take your child off life-support, but we are grateful for the lives, including ours, that have been irrevocably changed for the better.

We left a church that was healthy, growing, loving, relevant and connected in the community and we know that our people will go out wherever God leads, and continue to live out the abundance that He has deposited in each. As for me and my family, we are patiently waiting for our next marching orders from our Commander-in-Chief. As my former pastor’s wife reminded me, the kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. All those elements are present and at work in our family at this time. We are truly thankful for the love and grace of God and some amazing Thompson kids!

It is well…oh yeah, pun absolutely intended! 🙂
