Sean’s father died over the weekend. I didn’t know that when I asked how his weekend went. He said, “I had a great weekend, I had a terrible weekend.” I asked what that meant and he told me.
It was terrible because the death was sudden and a surprise. It was great because Sean was at Helping Up Mission and has been clean over 9 months…his dad reconnected in recent months, sharing his love and pride at his son’s new life…that same weekend God already had hooked Sean up with a whole new loving and caring family who had already planned his surprise 45th birthday party for the next day!
Then there was his career. God had given Sean a gift as an artist, which he had always squandered in his addiction. Now clean, God gave him a vision and a team to fulfill it. It has resulted in a business plan, corporation, foundation and ministry.
