This site will explore the ways in which God may call us and what those callings might be. I will chronicle my experiences and those of others who share theirs with me. My goal is to give you hope in an oftentimes hopeless world by relating the victories God gives us in our daily lives. Whatever you may be facing, there is always hope, if you just look for it. Mark 10:49b "Have courage! Get up; He's calling for you."

Oh, That Face!
by Bruce Brady
Most everyone knows a face that lights up a room. It’s a face you long to see, as often as possible.
I am blessed to know such a face. Whenever I see it, my heart leaps in my chest and I smile, inside and out. I awake every morning wanting to see that face. The vision of that face is the perfect start to my day. It inspires me to do much of all I do. It has affected me like this since I first saw it over 30 years ago.
One of my greatest goals in life is to keep a smile on that face. When it smiles, it takes my breath away and all is right with the world. To see it smile makes whatever I’m doing worth the effort, no matter the task, and it eases my cares.
The face I speak of is the face of my lover, my wife. She is still the most beautiful woman I’ve ever known or seen. She is, and always will be, my earthly reason for living. In fact, it is her face that led me to God.
Should you ever find yourself having a rough time, do whatever it takes to put a smile on your lover’s face. I believe you’ll find this will make your day go much better. You can’t have a bad day when you turn your attention to serving others. And that is one of our greatest callings on earth.
