The Talk of the Nurses Station

So this is how it went down...

Nurse, comes in to check my vitals for the ten thousandth time:
So, your husband really is a pastor?

Christine: Yep.

Nurse: Wow... cause, you like have your belly button pierced, and some tattoos and stuff.

Christine *snickers*: Yep.

Nurse: So, your husband. Really. He's a pastor?

Christine, thoroughly enjoying the moment: He sure is.

This conversation continued with me sharing the love of Jesus with her, and thankful that my "art"challenged her view of Christianity, and opened the door for me to have a meaningful conversation with her about the Lord, and His great work in my life.

FYI: I do know her name, but wanted her to remain anonymous.

That's a great story :) Oh and I love the fall picture on the blog. Ya don't get color like that in Hawaii! Oh, and Pastor Dave gave us an update on Sunday and said you were doing well. Glad to hear it!
