Payin' it Forward

Jason called this afternoon.

He's still in Denver, still doing his in-patient program.

He called as he found my number and wanted to let me know how much our interactions meant to him - how hitting bottom that second day we'd known each other really has helped him in his recovery.

I told him I was glad that it had worked out that way - that he'd been in our prayers regularly since having met him.

He thanked me, and told me that he would always remember us and would try to pay it forward and keep it real with people he met in life.

And that, friends, made my day.

Also made me think about a line from Toby Mac's Diverse City:

We 'bout to do this thing for real
Diverse City got mass appeal
So put your hand in the hand of mine
And we'll spread this love like dandelions


  1. I remember that other post. You are amazing. You'd have been amazing without the follow up, but isn't the f/u such a boost? Congrats to you and to him.

  2. Yay for you! YAY
