In the middle of chaos, I heard the most beautiful story. It is so beautiful, I can barely write it without a tissue in hand. It goes something like this...
After the initial shock of being let go from his company wore off, Andrew actively started seeking a new job. We were shocked and blessed that he was able to get an interview on Thursday. When Andrew returned home on Thursday, he relayed to me the details of the interview. It was an hour and a half interview with your usual series of questions. Andrew showed off some work he has done in the past and finished by answering more questions. Here was the final question of the interview that I will relay in a script format:
Interviewer: "So, what brings you fulfillment?"
Andrew: (Andrew pauses and thinks)..."Well do you mean professionally or personally?" with a smile.
Interviewer: Smiling back he says "Well...let's start with professionally."
Andrew: (blah, blah, blah...gives some answer that I don't recall)
Interviewer: "Ok. Well, it seemed like you were thinking something else when I first asked that question. So what really brings you fulfillment in life?"
Andrew: He pauses and smiles.. "My daughter."
I had our whole future planned out. Within a moment, that was completely turned upside down. I realized I don't have it all planned out...but, God does have it planned out! And His plan is so much greater than our own...and He has given us each other...he has fulfilled our ultimate desire...to have you!
