The ward meeting today was great. Many friends from both wards were there. Of course, it was a reorganization of boundaries meeting...
I will greatly miss my Home and Visiting Teachers. They were better than good, they were family. I know they are our friends forever.
The much teased about and speculated about event came true. When we had been organized into the Conroe 2nd ward, there were members on the Lake that said "Watch, this will be the Montgomery Ward." We would all laugh and joke about it. Many of those, including my hero, are gone. But for sure, we now have a Montgomery Ward. It is still crazy the way the boundaries are situated, and we will still have to drive many miles to get anywhere, but it is the Montgomery Ward. Silly right. Some of the priesthood are in truth that, but fun too.
I look forward to our first meeting next week. What fun to see the Lord's work moving forward.
My children have pretty much grown up in the gospel in the Houston Area. The oldest two were sealed to us while we were in the Melburne Ward. The first son started out his life in the Cypress Ward. The rest were born when we were in the Magnolia Ward. While we were in the Magnolia Ward, we never moved, but were in three different stakes, and now three different wards. With each change, we have increased in numbers of friends and growth in the gospel.
This church is a blessing in many ways.
