God cleared my clouded mind this weekend. He showed me how incredibly blessed I am. I have the most awesome job in the world, some of the best friends in the world, and serve the God from whom all blessings flow. There comes a time in hum-drum of the days, when God will make you look back at where you've been, see where you're at, and give you a glimpse of where He wants you do go. This past weekend was one of those moments for me. Hicksie's D*Now was amazing! (You have awesome kids, man!) But it also caused me to think of what we have here; it made the think of what God's "calling" really means. It means, I learned, doing His work, His way, where He wants you. I also realized what BLESSED means - not always joy, but faith that God is joy!
Should you so be inclined, stop to consider what you have. If you're seeking direction, listen to God more than yourself - He'll talk to you! A few "thank yous" are in order:
Hicksie - thanks for inviting me! God used you and guys to talk to me in a way that I really needed. It was great to see you again!
Shari - thanks for listening to my rants and ramblings on the 4-hour drive home.
Marc - thanks for EVERYTHING - I can't possibly list it all in this blog! You are amazing!
Tony - you are amazing!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the scrumdiddliumcious cake!!!!!!!!!! You are the sauce!!!!!!!!!!
Our LORD has blessed me with yalls friendships. I love yall!
