Pennies and Bandwagons

Some people barge into things without taking stock of the situation. Some sign up to buy without counting the cost. And some just haphazardly jump on the band wagon because it looks exciting or someone else is doing it. They don't think two minutes ahead let alone a week or month or year.

But every once in awhile you find someone who counts thoroughly, considers every possible outcome carefully, and checks to make sure every single penny is planned for before signing up. My husband is one such kind of guy. Decisions come slowly around our place.

For me, the decisive ready-to-go kind of gal, gaining a deep appreciation for a "think all things through" paradigm has at last come. I've grown extremely grateful for this man of God who loves me, leads my family, and shepherds a large congregation. We have all benefited immensely from his thoughtful care.

So trust me when I say, he is not a rash man. He is entering into the fray in a more public way than he is accustomed. This is not an arena he enjoys or takes to naturally. But he has counted the cost and found that every penny spent will be worth it. In taking stock of the situation he found a need to act, whether it bring public attention or not. In looking ahead he sees the possibilities of much good to many people.

So, get ready, folks. This quiet thoughtful man may be a mouth piece. The band wagon may be just his style this time around. But he's counted the cost -- every penny.

I am proud to call this man not only Pastor but friend.

And, what a mouthpiece he will be...because he listens carefully to God!
We are blessed to have him as a Pastor!
