What an honor!

My hubby has been nominated to be a deacon at our church!
I'm so thrilled and excited for him!!! ~Being a deacon and eventually an elder, have been the desires of his heart ever since he became a Christian back in college.

He has such a passion for the local church and he has such a servant's heart.
I think he would make a wonderful deacon.
(But I'm biased! I think he would be wonderful at anything.) ; )
We will find out whether or not this is God's timing on Wednesday,
when the church takes a vote. : )

"Likewise deacons must be reverent, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy for money, holding the mystery of the faith with a pure conscience. But let these also first be tested then let them serve as deacons, being found blameless. Let deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a good standing and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus."

That is awesome. God will make sure it is the right time if this is what is meant to be for your hubby.

My husband is a deacon at our church. It's such a huge, kind of scary responsibility---a tall, humbling order. But conversely, such a neat servants blessing. Does that make sense? Congratulations.
