Called and Commissioned

Some of the most important things ever said to me were uttered by Heart Of My Heart: "I love you", "Come grow old with me", and "With all that I am, and all that I have I honor you."  Others, mostly family members have also said "I love you" and it means no less hearing it from them than from HOMH.  But I was really was caught off-guard and humbled with some things I heard today.

"You do relationships."  "You should be a parish priest, and you should have a church where God can use you in ministry."  "You should baptize babies and adults, you should marry couples, and you should bury people."  (Yes, that last part sounded weird, but I understood he meant 'you should bless the dying').  "You are not called for a specialized ministry, but God should place you in a church where you can be with God's people because you are gifted that way."

W. O. W.

This from a dear, dear friend whom I love, admire and cherish.  Was I ever humbled.

Only by God's Grace, and Only with God's help will any of this be possible.
