Furthermore, when I met Pam, I was at a place in my life where I had lost my way and was living a day at a time, I had not been in church for a few years and needed some direction. Don't get me wrong, the life plan was more or less on schedule, I was in Law School, well adjusted due to my parents excellent parenting skills but still there was something missing, que Pam. Pam had been a committed Christian for sometime before that day we met and I learned later that she approached me with the intention of sharing her faith with me.After a couple of conversations / meetings Pam invited me to church and I haven't looked back since. Sometimes all it takes for someone to realise their need for Christ is the kindness of a stranger or the gentle leading of a friend. It is after all through relationships and random acts of kindness that the gospel is spread and people are saved and established in their faith.
Aside from the shared history we have since become really good friends and now have joint memories we both were in together eight years on which is wonderful! Today I celebrate her as its her birthday!!!! I wont tell you her age but I will tell you that this is no ordinary birthday but the very last birthday of her twenties :-) So as I have had the pleasure of watching her develop from an almost tomboyish jeans wearing and slightly odd girl into a beautiful, very successful, professional and incredible outgoing, fun and very well dressed lady. So on this very special day I want to give a special shout out to my lovely sister and friend, Miss Pam.
To join me in celebrating this beautiful lady, share your faith with someone, engage in a random act of kindness, befriend someone and show them some love and remember, be yourself, there is nothing more off putting than a bible basher or someone who seems to be in your life because they have an agenda. Like Pam just put yourself out there, find someone you can share and be available...there are a lot of lost or hurting people out there...Be the difference for them as Pam was for me!
