Titus 2 Tuesday!


What have you learned from a woman this week (or ever)?

Whenever I write my "Titus 2", I think for a long time and ponder my story with this person.

What can I say about AnneMarie?

She's amazing.

She's a sweetheart.

Our journies have had paths in common and I'm glad they crossed. I am so blessed to know this woman, I can't even really describe.

I met AnneMarie when we worked together several years ago - can't believe it's been several!

At first, I wasn't too sure about her. :) It took me awhile, and slowly but surely, we grew closer. We had some great times working together, but staying there was not in God's plan for either of us! We also had some challenging times... like the time we were in lock down for 3 hours!!! If I had to pick anyone to go through that situation with, I'd pick her. :)

This wasn't the day of the lock down... lol

The one thing that I've always loved about AnneMarie was her attitude of gratitude. She always showed such joy... even though I know that she wasn't feeling it on the inside. I wouldn't have guessed it then, but I know now.

AnneMarie recently shared her testimony with her church. In it, she stated that one verse that got her through was Jeremiah 29:11. While I like this verse, one other verse that reminds me of AnneMarie is Romans 8:28, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, and who have been called according to his purpose."

AnneMarie has definitely been called... and she definitely loves Him... and all things are working for her good! Although I was honored that I had witnessed to her; what AnneMarie doesn't know is that her testimony recharged me and also gave me a sense of hope.

I always look up to people with great faith and those who show the light of Jesus. I never thought that I was an encouragement and witness to others.

You can listen to AnneMarie's testimony HERE!!! Scroll down and click the mp3 link for March 22. :)

One thing I've learned - lately - from her is that you never know who you're planting a seed in. I listen to K-Love radio at my desk all the time... always have. I always like when people ask what I'm listening to... gives me a chance to share. Maybe God will open the same opportunities for you to share your story.

K-Love is awesome! I miss that station (I don't really listen on line...so I miss listening in my car.) I'm sure you have planted or watered many a seed along the way!

Thank you for sharing AnneMarie with us! I'm off to hear her testimony!
