A Big Step on Easter


My husband received a message from the Pastor of our church last week and said, "I wonder what John wants." I thought he was going to ask him something important because he doesn't call us that often. I just told him, "I don't know, just call him back and see."

He goes downstairs to call and a few minutes later opens the door to our room where I'm happily updating my Blog...his eyes are like saucers, "He wants me to share my life story/testimony on Easter. I don't know if I can do that. I'm not the type of person that can talk in front of people."
I told him, "Well, obviously they think you are the perfect person to talk on Easter Sunday. They would never have asked you if they didn't feel that your story would make a huge impact on someone. You have to do it!" He said, "I'll think about it." I knew he would end up saying yes, so I said, "Just pray about it."

Well guess what...he's going to do it. He's really nervous about it and has been working on it for a couple of weeks now. His story is amazing and I'm not just saying that because I'm his wife. If I had actually met him back when he was so wild, I don't know if we would be married right now. I will post his story on my Blog after the service. I don't want to spoil it for some of my friends who will be going to our church and who may read my Blog.

Please say a prayer for him that he will not be nervous and that the Lord will use him to touch someone's life.

Just popping in from SITS - you take fantastic photos! The photo of your son in his birthday post makes him look like a model! Have a wonderful Easter and I hope the Testimony goes well.

Wow, that's awesome! Praying for him, as I know he's nervous...but there is a reason that he's supposed to do this...someone will be touched, I can nearly guarantee it...God has a plan!

Speaking in public is so hard for me. I admire him for his courage to accept the call! He will do so well! Let us know how he does. You guys will be in my thoughts especially this Easter Sunday.
