It probably is not the first time I have said this, but one of the things that makes this calling so very amazing, and humbling, is how folks welcome you into their lives. There is invitation to walk with them in some of the most joyous, and the most painful, moments of life. It is awesome.
Then there are the visits. Time to talk, share, and learn intensely about someone. It is a gift to have folks tell me the stories about their lives: their faith, pain, joy, hopes, and regrets. I so enjoy hearing about their families, seeing pictures, learning what is, and has been, important to them throughout their lives. It is holy ground time.
Ahh...the joy of having the call to listen.
