Just Be There & Be Ready

My wife’s sister and I rode out to the Pig to get breakfast for for the three of us. As I pulled into the parking lot we heard a horn blow, but I knew it wasn’t for me. As we parked a young lady pulled up behind us, got out and came to my window. I got out and she started apologizing for blowing the horn because she had thought I was her dad. I told her no need to apologize.

Then she started crying and told me her mother in law was in the ICU unresponsive and not expected to live. She thought I was her dad and was ignoring her. She was a basket case. I put my hands on her shoulders and told her to look at me. I said it’s okay. I began to pray for her in the parking lot while she sobbed. When I finished praying I talked to her that God is in control and peace and comfort was hers. More was said but we left her as she went off to work. God puts you where you need to be for someone today. You don’t have to look. Just be there and be ready.

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.
