MUSINGS FROM MIKE
The staff at my Mom’s Nursing Home who do a very hard job for not a lot of money or positive feedback.
People who are walking with loved ones (parents, children, spouses, friends) through some of the toughest times in their lives.
The people who are being evaluated by productivity, test scores, bottom lines, and all kinds of other numbers and who still manage to give time and attention to their co-workers and customers.
Every parent who teaches a lesson, gently corrects, and laughs out loud with their children in the midst of an off-the-chain schedule and lifestyle.
People who are facing the aches, pains, and downright terrifying realities of aging and yet retain an sense of humor about themselves and life.
Teens who are facing big things and yet managing to stretch themselves in great ways and are discovering incredible things about the world and themselves.
The people who live an intentional faith and who let the light of gracious love, God’s kind of love, shine through them.
The people who serve with humility and grace in so many ways through the life and ministry of Butler UMC to make this place and community the amazing thing that it is.
They, and so many more, are my heroes. They amaze, inspire, and astound me. More importantly, they help me to know that the love of God is real because I see it at work in them.
Who are your heroes?
