I've spent a lot of time reflecting these past months on my life and my relationships. The foremost relationship that emerged in my thoughts was with God. In my life I've been in some situations that I didn't know if I would survive. But one thought that always came to me was that when I was scared and in a bad situation I prayed. That was probably a function of my upbringing, but I also think that it was deep in my soul. I remember praying on the plane to Vietnam and making a pact with God that if I got out I would be a better person, one He would approve of. I did the same while I was a cop before I went into situations that were frightening to me. I am here and He delivered me. My contemplation was, why? That's where I am now. God allowed me to survive these times in my life and the only answer I can come up with is that He's not done with me. Now I search for that answer. What does God have in store for me? In God We Trust? I do.
