How can you obtain those credientials, too? We don't have to take a test or do anything special to deserve such distinctions. Our God-given credentials do not belong to us because of who we are, but rather because of to Whom we belong. And, like the responsibility that Dr. Joseph Michie carries with his new title, we have a tremendous responsibility as representatives of Jesus Christ. We exemplify Him in our attitudes, our character, and in our love for others.
Maybe we should have business cards made with our God-given credentials on them!

It was just "puppy love" that brought my Honey and I together at the ages of 13 and 12. We eventually married at the "mature" ages of 18 and 17. And that's when our faith journey began. Over the years, we encountered many opportunities to stretch our faith, especially when our babies were very sick, when financial situations were out of control, and when our marriage relationship had some rocky periods.But we made it through those times by our strong faith and trust in God. But never was our faith more challenged, than when my 63 years "young" husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney Cancer. Fortunately, the 44 years of marriage and faith-building experiences, caused us to "weather the storm", and still remain in peace and strong in our faith. This "peace that passed understanding" compelled me to blog and share the principles that caused our faith to be unwavering and continues to give me the joys of living large! I'm still here, so I'm not done!. I pray you will grow in your faith as you, not only read the blogs, but apply the principles to your own life -- for the good times, and especially for those times that seem so overwhelming.
