Thanks to Debi and MG for sharing their gifts…

MG and Debi are two names that are interwoven through out this reflection. A big thank you to their faithfulness in using all their gifts and being steadfast. 

“GOD CALLS US according to our unique aptitudes. But we often overlook our more “everyday” human attributes like having a strong back or being able to repair machines or grow flowers. Some of us can organize; some can do accounting; some can greet people warmly and make them feel welcome; some can make plants grow. Think about such natural abilities and how God might use them.”

From my notes:

Gary taught some things this morning that were really impressive but one, of several, that stood out above the rest (FOR ME) was in his teaching about one of God’s Truth & Principles; that He is Savior and came to seek and save those who were lost and bring them into the family of God as adopted sons. And then he said, “Jesus went through a whole, complex legal process to get us adopted into the family of God. “ Now I don’t know everything that that would entail but I heard the Truth in that statement. It made me think about it.
In speculating about this and this is speculation,

My Testimony-Pharm D

Q. From Sara…Heather, when did you realize your mission on earth was to be a pharmacist?
A. I hadn’t even considered pharmacy until my senior year in high school. I had gone from nurse anesthesia, to nuclear medicine technology, to a medical doctor. (Obviously, I was interested in the medical field.)
