Turn about’s fair play……
Yesterday I talked about how Scott Kelby came to my rescue. Well isn’t God fantastic! Today I got an email from my dear friend and shooting buddy, Vinny Colucci. It turns out that a seminar he had scheduled for July 24th in Greensboro, North Carolina was in trouble, his presenter Bob Krist had a conflict in his schedule and couldn’t make it. His question to me was could I step in for Bob.
First I love Bob Krist, he is the best travel shooters out there, in my estimation, and I don’t know if I
could draw for Vinny like Bob could, but how could I say anything but, count me in……
Part of our walk with the Lord is proving we mean it when we say we will step up to the plate when He calls on us. When Vinny needs my help, God is calling. Vinny has been a real friend through thick and thin and I wouldn’t let him down. I don’t usually announce places I’m doing workshops in this blog. I don’t want the focus to be off of the faith aspect of this site, but this is place where faith and actions meet. Faith and action. Faith is the key to waiting on and listening for God’s voice. Action is often what he calls us to. When I discussed starting this blog with a dear friend at Nikon, it was discussed that while my faith is real, taking this action (writing a blog about my faith), could ruffle some feathers. While that would never be my intention, it could happen. So the question is what would you do?
When I took the job as a PMTR, (Professional Markets Tech Rep), at Nikon I told my boss and friend, Bill Pekala that before I agreed to take the job he needed to know what my priorities would be. God, Family, Friends and Nikon, in that order. I told him I would give him 110% effort for Nikon but I wouldn’t sacrifice numbers 1 through 3 under any circumstance. I’m eight years in and it hasn’t been a problem, if it ever was, I would walk away without complaint.
God doesn’t want 110% effort or a big part of your life, He wants it all.
