If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Today's the Day!

This was taken in the late 70's, early 80's in the dispatch center

This is a little more current in the dispatch center

I'm at work for the last time today, at least at this job.  Who knows what the future holds?  Well, I know who knows, Jesus!  The decision to retire was very hard for me to make, but I finally decided and now the day has come.  Actually tomorrow is my last day, but I worked Monday which was my holiday so I could take the holiday tomorrow. 

In about an hour and a half they have a luncheon planned for me.  I have no idea what's going to happen or who will be there and to tell the truth, that makes me a little nervous.  lol  But I know it's really going to be fun, but I'm sure a little emotional and stressful too.

I also know when I wake up on Monday it's going to be weird to realize that I'm no longer employed.  But I'm so excited to see what life brings.  I have so many things I want to do and I'm looking forward to having some time to do some of those things.

So anyway, the next time I show up here, I will be exploring life as a retiree.  Hopefully, I can share some of those experiences here.  I know I love to read about others who are retired.

Hope you all have a great day and thanks for visiting and Happy New Year
