Life got the best of my time but I am back from my unexpected break. I will definitely be posting new posts as soon as I am able to.Pin It
Author’s note: This is an open letter directed to my
brothers and sisters in Christ after the death of President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.
It is in Spanish but an English translation is offered.
Hermanos y hermanas en Cristo:
Mis oraciones estan con ustedes en estos momentos. Dios tiene todo control; no olviden de Sus promesas.
Tengan fe y esperanza en estos dias que vengan.
To my brothers and sisters in Christ:
My prayers are with you in these moments. God has full control; do not forget His promises.
Have faith and hope in these days that are to come.
That has been the theme for PWOC for the 2012 to 2013 year. As PWOC is transitioning, the theme has been a constant reminder of what I have experienced this past year.
This past year I have been experiencing what was discussed at the PWOCI conference in 2010, the “Megan”and “Michelle” generation. The “Megan” and “Michelle” generation are those who need to understand the essence of what PWOC is for. I am part of that generation, as I have been involved with PWOC for almost four years now. I have been impacted by what it means by generation to generation; I have been mentored by another generation that has not experienced what I have experienced in the last four years but has given me insight on what it means to have friendships that span generations.
Even though PWOC and MCCW are experiencing the same transitions, those are two ministries that have impacted many women over the years, including me. PWOC has granted me the chance to be a part of various bible studies that I would never have known about beforehand and understand more of what God’s purpose is in my life.
Retreat enabled me to understand what God’s purpose is for my life. No technology to distract me or homework to distract me either.
Garrison command here has changed the “reverse PT” schedule so we are now on morning PT schedule, again. We were not even on reverse PT for a long time, either.
I wish I had taken a picture of the parking lot at church yesterday. It was chilly and strange weather that there was a fog and icy tree branches near the church entrance.
I enjoyed the sight and I enjoyed the sight this morning as well…with a beautiful sunrise. Even if I can’t wait to move from this area, I will miss the mountains and the beautiful sunrise.
I woke up this morning to read the Bible in a Year, courtesy of Wives of Faith Being a part of Wives of Faith last year was amazing and I hope to grow more in my walk with God this year by reading verses that speak to me.
Since it is January, I was reading the plan for this month. The verses that spoke to me this morning was Matthew 6: 19-24 (NIV).
Particularly verse 21…
21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

The reason why this verse speaks to me is the sermon that our pastor was talking about yesterday morning. It is good to have an inheritance here on earth but our treasure and our focus should be living for Christ, since He gave us hope.
