So yesterday I learned that all of those hours studying up on Avatar paid off! Watching the show 3 times through in one school year at college, best idea ever! We got to the appointment, and the kids were finishing up an episode on the couch. They finished and then obviously I started talking with them about Avatar. There was still some time before lunch was ready, and so we decided to play some avatar. (Sort of like how we used to play Megaman on the trampoline when we were kids). All 4 of us picked a character, Fabio was Aang, Emelia was Katara, Sister Hammock was Princess Azula, and I was, of course, Appa the flying Bison.
He walks in, gets greeted by Benjie, then by Sister Hammock, then I go to shake his hand and I realize I recognize him from Somewhere. I ask him if we've met before, and then he reminds me that we had met in the Bus and continued to talk in the train all the way down to Konstanz. I totally remember talking to him! His name is P, and it was one of those conversations, where I just chatting and chatting with him, even though I thought nothing would come of it. I had given him a card with our number, and he had gone his way. I seriously thought nothing of it, just another one of those conversations.
Sometimes I think, man, all I can do is carry on a conversation with anybody. That's nice, but I need to have this persons spiritual gift, or that persons spiritual gift. Of course it is important to seek to improve ourselves and develop new talents and gifts, but I think God really wanted to remind me that he's called me to the work and he knows my strengths and weaknesses perfectly. He knows exactly what I am going to do, and he will use me accordingly.
I love you!
