|Allisyn, Pat and John in front of the courthouse|
Ash Wednesday arrived. Allisyn, John and I got set up in front of the courthouse. Within 15 minutes who should walk up but one of my dearest friends I had hoped wouldn’t see me! She had jury duty. The gig was up!! After we discussed her jury duty she asked what I was doing. After a brief explanation I asked if she would like ashes and she said, “Sure, why not.” And there I was giving ashes and God’s blessings to my friend. I stood there after she left simply overcome by what had just happened and the joy I felt.
God does work in strange and mysterious ways. If we are obedient, although reluctant to His call, He does the rest! I can’t wait to participate again next year and encourage you all to do the same.
