Russ and I were at a Bible study about 6 months ago and the leader brought a video of this incredible young man, Nick Vujicic. He was born without arms and legs, and travels all over the world sharing his wonderful testimony, and his love for Christ. You can read about his life here. He is incredibly inspiring.
As we watched the video, I realized that his last name was the same as a friend I'd gone to high school with. It's not a common name, but he's from Australia, not Southern California. My friend and I don't see each other often, but we have kept in touch, so when I went home I sent her an email and asked her if by chance, she knew of him?
Not only did she know him, he's her nephew, and her husband is on the board of directors of this ministry. What are the odds? We talked on the phone later that week and she told me so many wonderful stories about this young man.
If he's in your area, take the time to go see him, you will be inspired.
I also want to say thank you to Judy at Benmakesten for this sweet blog award. Thanks Judy! You're supposed to pass it along to someone who has been with you from the beginning of your blog. I haven't been blogging long, but Jill at Bailiwick Designs and Beverly at My Sew Sweet Studio have both been a wonderful support since I started, so I'm passing it on to them. Blessings,
