You know I work on getting my 10,000 or more steps every day. Not as many as some, but still good. Walking in the neighborhood with the lake nearby and lots of trees seems to lend itself to more ponderings than walking in the mall does. Seen on Charley walk, they are untended. They bloom on their own every year. 2 flowers yesterday; 4 today.
This morning’s walk got me to thinking about the approaching endings in my life. I’ve spent the last three years serving on my church’s governing board, the session, but that will end as new elders take over for the outgoing class. Leaving the session means I won’t chair two church committees. I’ll still serve on them, but not have a leadership role.
The other thing that’s ending very soon is the Relocation Central Commission and my chairing of that group. The RCC had its first meeting exactly two years ago today (Thursday, May 21) to begin the process of figuring out the process to move us from our old church building which we’d been in for over 75 years to a new building, with a detour to a temporary spot before making it to our new home. That move physically took place the end of March/first of April. Yes, the stay at home orders had gone into effect, but apparently moving is considered an essential business, for which I’m grateful.

For the first year the RCC met weekly, then we met once a month, and finally went back to weekly meetings as the time to move into the new building approached.
With staying home, I don’t have a more recent pic of new/remodeled building.
We’re talking a kajillian agendas and even more minutes in various forms as they got edited. We were blessed by having excellent folks taking minutes. It will take forever to go through and prune documents from my hard drive and the paper copies! And we’ve had great folks keeping up with the money. We’re all glad to know I didn’t have to do that. LOL
