Have you ever felt completely overwhelmed? According to dictionary.com, overwhelmed can mean “to load, heap, treat, or address with an overpowering or excessive amount of anything”. I am less than one week from departing home and I feel completely overwhelmed with love and support. My tenure at the local gym is now complete (at least for a year) and I’ve spoken about my impending journey to my home congregation at Trinity Lutheran Church (shout out!) and both places have left me feeling wholly blessed. No handshake, hug, or kind word has been for not; indeed, I cherish all the of the encouragement that has been sent my way in the last week. To be sure, there is no better way to shake away my doubts and jitters and to send me off with confidence and Spirit! Thank you to you, just on the other side of this screen!
