|Bill Williams is a real survivor -- 25 years now, living the real-life "Survivor" reality-show-drama. He's from Texas originally, but came with his family to San Diego in 1954. His mother was a preacher, as also two of his brothers, pastors of their own church.|
GOD put Bill Williams in my sight, in my heart. Twice before, i saw Bill with his survival paraphernalia as we drove by. Today, yielding to the Holy SPIRIT's leading (His impressing upon my heart), i rode my bike, with CHRISTmas stuff in my backpack...not knowing what to expect, but praying for GOD's blessing hand upon this GODventureZ.
So we celebrated CHRISTmas -- with friendly conversation and chocolates...
|We decorated his living area with this flag from The Shoppe at Rose's and i'm glad that all the passing cars will see that it's "Merry CHRISTmas" -- not "Happy Holidays"!|
|While i sat with Bill, a car stopped...and this elderly lady came out with two gift bags -- one for Bill and one for me! We warmly hugged each other and talked a little in Spanish (yo con mi Espanol poquito!) Carmen, whom i've never met before, had also obeyed the Holy SPIRIT's leading and blessed us with her gifts of socks and beanies and tracts. (Carmen's iglesia is Agape en CRISTO, with Pastor Jose Garcia/Pastor Miguel Garcia -- in Chula Vista.)|
i don’t mean to say that i have already achieved these things or that have already reached perfection. But i press on to possess that perfection for which CHRIST JESUS first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, i have not achieved it, but i focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, i press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which GOD, through CHRIST JESUS, is calling us. (Philippians 3:12-14, NLT)
