Plans – They paid off!

Four years ago, I went to Philadelphia to attend my twin brother's "white coat ceremony" at Drexel University College of Medicine.  This ceremony started the four year journey through medical school.  For John, it was the realization of years of studying, planning, and dreaming.

Today, I find myself in Philadelphia again.  John graduates from medical school today.  The first doctor in the family.

John's plans have paid off!  It was not easy.  It was not fun all of the time.  It was not glamorous.

TODAY, however, is easy, fun, and glamorous.  Today, John Sangl becomes Dr. John D. Sangl.

Congratulations, John, on achieving a life-long dream!

Anyone out there have a dream?  A big dream?  A dream that scares you to death?  One that you can hardly share with those you care most about?  Question:  What are you doing about your dreams?

    given our lack of children, I guess I will continue to focus on the next three generations of others… focusing on their accepting their invitation to spend eternity with Jesus!

    And spending my money wisely will allow me to show Jesus’ love to others in many physical ways…. cause when you meet someone’s physical needs, they listen to you talk about Jesus!

    Dude… you are either spending tons on gas, or getting lots of air miles this week! Be safe in your travels… we NEED your passion in Anderson!
