vocation

I work with elders because I am selfish: I want to limit my own suffering in old age, and hopefully others' along the way. I am open and actively learning from elders and the aging process.
Having no idea what to do next hurts, even as it might excite us on some level. Whether graduating from college or retiring from a long career, the road ahead may appear to be devoid of landmarks - intimidating in its blankness, goading because freedom is supposed to be so desirable yet its reality is often heavy with perplexing dilemmas.
All of us have vocational moments or experiences in our lives that God uses to reveal our passion and purpose in life. For me, these vocational moments evolve into a deeper calling to ordained ministry.
Sitting at that bus stop I now realized that God's first calling for me to serve poor and at-risk youth took place when He used the kindness of that woman to show me what grace looks like.
