Today I’ll be spending time with relatives to celebrate Thanksgiving. Aunts, uncles, cousins and offsprings will all come together to break bread, laugh and enjoy each other. It’s such a beautiful thing and I really look forward to it.
The night before though, I sat in my couch in my apartment writing this blog on my cell phone, alone. You see just 3 years ago I finalized the divorce papers and dissolved a 16 year marriage. I walked away from everything I had spent most of my life building and working and fighting for-my home-so that my ex-wife and kids wouldn’t have to be uprooted from the only home they had ever known.
Sounds like a sad story,I know. And yet I write you with a heart full of gratitude. Because through it all God has been faithful and given me favor. God has blessed my ex-wife and I to have a healthy, respectful and friendly relationship with each other.
I have unrestricted access to my boys and spend every other weekend with them. They are healthy and well adjusted young men who love us both equally and are proud of their parents for how we handled everything.
This year God placed my business on a new path that is in line with the calling He gave me. Since taking the old company website down, changing the company name and completely changing its direction and focus, I am now more fulfilled in my work than I’ve ever been.
Not only am I doing the work I believe God created me to do, but it’s touching people on a much bigger scale than I ever dreamed. I’m thankful that I get to meet, interact with and serve people like you and help you take your your ministry to the next level as I continue to seek to go higher myself.
And so even though I’m alone now after 16 years of living with a family around all the time, I feel like I’ve gained an even bigger family. And that family continues to grow.
And so as my family member I’d like to wish you a special happy Thanksgiving. May God bless you and yours richly today and in the coming year.
