Two big things, part 1

Leave a comment

It’s been quite some time since I last wrote anything here. There has been plenty going on…I just haven’t really known where to begin.

Now it’s the end of June and here I am sitting in a Florida hotel room, watching The Mighty Ducks on TV, and thinking about all the many blessings in my life.

It all started in early February…. oh, wait a minute now… it really all started way, way back years ago when hubby John was only 14 years old…

OK, tell you what…I’ll cut you a break and skip over about 45 years (I can hear the collective sigh of relief) and tell you about one of the two big things since February.

The first big thing, and the reason why I’m in Florida right now, is that we’re at a chaplain conference and John just became a Board Certified John w certificate-webChaplain! He’s been working as a hospice chaplain for almost six years and was able meet with a certification committee this week and – he made it! I’m very excited and thankful and happy about his accomplishment. This truly has been 45 years in the making and we’ve learned to serve God and trust Him in ways we never imagined.

The most important part of this, and what I want to share with you, is that God is faithful and He will bring you through.

1 Thessalonians 5.24 (New International Version) says, “The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.”

In the New Living Translation it’s, “God will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful.”

Each one of us is here for a reason and God calls each of us to something in this life.  It’s not the same for me as it is for you.  What is the same though is that God is faithful.  You can count on Him.

Always remember that home is where the heart is … and there’s no place like home!
