2021 Retrospect

As this year winds down I’ve found that in spite of the world’s condition I have thrived. I have thrived

for one reason. That reason is God. This year started with school again by God’s speaking to me to do so.

Certification as a Chaplain after being ordained for now coming up three years this coming February and certified in Suicide Awareness & Prevention. I want to thank my pastor Timothy Cavanaugh for recognizing the calling on me. I want to thank Terry Norris as well for taking me on to help with a new thrust into putting Chaplains all over the United States to respond to disasters.

I’ve asked God why so late in life and all He said is I’m not done yet. I don’t question that. I’ve started writing a book called “Suicide – Satan’s Killing Ground”. It isn’t done yet even though if I wrote nothing else in it, I could call it completed.

Political and governmental issues can’t stop God. We, you and I, as Christians need to start finding our place. We need to start acting on what our hearts tell us. I said this to say that we all have the right to become what God calls us to do and first of all become. Libby will also be ordained into the ministry this coming February. In spite of the events of the past I can honestly say I am where God wants me.

How about you?

About Jim

I'm a 72 yr old guy, who had worked in Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune for 28 yrs and now retired as of 31 Dec 16. I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.
