An incident that impacted my life in a really positive way…. 

I’m going to have to reach way back for this one. And get a little personal.

In 1998, my then fiancé (now husband) and I decided to ‘put things on hold’ for awhile. If you’ve ever been in this situation, you know that’s not a good sign. I was devastated. But in truth, I knew it was a much needed course of action for us. And it just happened to coincide (by design?) with a four month assignment in another city with my employer, so that made it somewhat easier for me to deal with.

Long story short, four months turned into ten months and a life-changing experience for me. During this time, God turned my world upside down. Going into this, I was a very immature believer. Although I had been a Christian for 10 years, I hadn’t grown much, and could certainly be labeled as nominal. But that all changed in the furnace. He isolated me from every person I could turn to, and I had to learn to depend on Him for everything. And to wait on Him. And wait, and wait, and wait… As a result my relationship with Him became solid and fruitful. I experienced Him to a depth I never thought I could or ever would. And even though my life has not been perfect since then, I still have never lost that deep abiding faith and relationship with Him that I gained during that time. 

Now let’s have some fun!
