That pretty lady in the picture to the right ------> yeah, she's with me. I love it! My best friend. I've never had an even close second to the companionship that this Godly woman provides. About two years ago we began to pray about her following a dream and calling that we felt the Lord placing on her (our) life. In 2005, the seeds of a career / ministry of nursing were planted as we worked alongside, interpreting for medical teams in Guatemala. Then while living in Georgia and volunteering in a Crisis Pregnancy Center, the Lord continued to grow this desire.
For the sake of staying brief and not divining into our story too much...tonight I was reminded that being around a person who is passionate about what they are doing is contagious. God uses these people and moments remind me about my personal calling in life. These moments become an accountability check. All of us probably need to be reminding every now and then, why we are doing what we are doing. So often for me this comes in moments of self reflection. Hearing my wife talk about a really good day where she learned a lot, had new experiences, or had an 'ah ha' moment...remind me to check myself (this happened tonight). These moments remind me to examine my passions, making sure my life is staying focused on what matters most. Staying focused on the calling that the Lord has placed on my life and watching for His movement.
