Mama

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭20:12‬ ‭ESV

March 12 is my mother’s birthday. Today I honor her in Heaven for sacrificing so much for me and for loving me enough to make me fiercely independent. There are so many precious memories, but one stands out above all other. My older brother died of melanoma at age 24 just 3 weeks before Christmas and my mother, along with my father, made sure that Christmas was extra special for everyone else. That kind of courage and love defined my mother and I am indeed thankful.

When I think of home, I envision a safe place where I have freedom to be myself and not worry about the outside world. At home, I am loved for just being me. Unfortunately not everyone experiences this ideal situation, but ultimately I believe we all desire to belong to such a place. Our Hope is that one day we will go to our Eternal Home and experience that forever.

Clarity

“Let every word you speak be drenched with grace and tempered with truth and clarity. For then you will be prepared to give a respectful answer to anyone who asks about your faith.”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭4:6‬ ‭TPT‬‬

When you seek God with all your heart and all your soul and all your might, He manifests Truth and Peace and Love. We can only have this clarity with His Divine intervention. I have come to realize my life is tenuous, and I need Him to save me from myself. I can see clearly now—that’s clarity.

Soul Mate

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭2:24‬ ‭ASV‬‬

Many people believe that they will feel “complete” once they have found their soulmate. This “only one” person is “meant to be” and will satisfy all their desires.
Some psychologists state that believing that a soulmate exists specifically for a person is an unrealistic expectation.
Certainly our Creator has a plan and He certainly creates souls that mate.

Our Wedding

Tomorrow (12/22/2018), Sheridan and I will be married. Our story began when she, a news reporter, interviewed me as the first Radiation Oncologist in a new Cancer Center. Soon thereafter, we serendipitously met at a fundraiser and talked all day. Somehow we did not start dating then because we misread each other’s interest. Our paths diverged for 9 years, and then we reconnected on LinkedIn and our journey together began 2 years ago. We have traveled the World and shared so many precious memories already; but, God willing, we are just beginning. Yesterday, my sister informed me that my maternal grandparents were married on December 22, 1925–that and the Full Moon tomorrow—good signs🙏
