It was a long, and complicated series of events (marriage, losses, funerals) that sparked Jeff’s desire to reconfirm his beliefs.
We began going to church more and more regularly, not just for funerals, anymore. When it was announced at church one morning, that new membership classes were beginning, Jeff wanted to go. I said I would gladly go with him.
I was curious, as I had been raised in a Jewish home. I wanted to learn the source of Jeff’s strength, and I wanted to spend as much time as I could with my husband, in any way possible.
We already knew Jeff’s health was failing, and I realized this would be important to him in the years to come.
I did not expect to find Jesus. I did not expect to convert. I did not expect the great changes that were coming in my life, for better and worse. I did not expect the great comforts I’ve found, either.
