In A Relationship
June 18 2006
As many of you know, I play at church every Sunday morning. Well today was a normal day and we concluded the service and I went to go put my flute in my case. I was talking to Christi, and mom and dad were talking to another couple about cruises. In the midst of Christi and I talking, a new lady came up to me and started telling me a story. She told me about her daughter who played flute in high school and was involved in a car wreck. She asked if I was going to UT Martin and I told her that I was going to UT Chattanooga. Then she told me that her daughter was taken to Erlinger Hospital in Chattanooga, which happens to be right behind my dorm. Her daughter ended up dying but she was going to major in Physical Therapy also. This lady had come to our church yard sale a month or so ago and had seen my name and had heard about my flute playing and where I was going to college and what my major was. She then told me that God had brought her to our church for her to present a gift to me in her daughters memory. I only hope that I can find a great use for this gift. This had really moved me because the minister had just finished saying how angels are always around us when we worship. I had no idea how much my flute playing could impact the life of anyone else. It's very humbling to see how God has used me in the past several months. As I retell this story to others I can't help but cry to think of that sad story and what an impact this experience has now had on my life.
