Psalm 74.16-17 (CEB)
The day belongs to you! The night too! You established both the moon and the sun. You set all the boundaries of the earth in place. Summer and winter? You made them!
A season is a period of particular activity. It is marked by two very specific things: a beginning and an ending. And soon we will meet with one end in particular as our Church Secretary Dottie leaves. It is with a heavy heart I share this with you all:

La Porte, Texas 77571
Dear Rev. Brian,
I regretfully and yet joyfully submit my letter of resignation as secretary of La Porte Community Church, with my last day of employment being Friday, September 4, 2015. There have been some changes in my life which have prompted me to make the decision to leave employment with LPCC.
La Porte Community Church has always been like home to me and the folks there treat me as family; they ARE family.
It has been such a pleasure working with you Brian. I feel that I learned much from you and the position of secretary of the church. I appreciate the working relationship we have had and the fact that you made the position enjoyable and fun. I appreciate your friendship.
Dottie George Gaona
I am thankful for these verses because it reminds me that much of life is built around beginnings and endings. While this doesn’t soften the blow or make things hurt less, what it does is give language to the transitions in life. I am thankful for all that Dottie has done for LPCC and myself. I pray that the next part of her adventure be all she has dreamed.
Grace and peace,
Husband, father, minister, child of God, follower of Jesus Christ writing in the context of La Porte Community Church
