In my own life, I offered all that I am to God, knowing that I would never be truly happy without using the God-given talents He has given me. I have been in the music ministry at a Baptist Church for over 17 years and often wondered why they would want to keep me, a man with such limited sight-reading ability. But God made a way for me to return to UTK School of Music 10 years ago, and now I am able to be all that I can be. I also wonder why I am not doing all this for my own Catholic parish, and then I realize that God has a plan to use me right where I am. God has done great things for me, and for this I can never thank Him enough.
