Haha. I think it was more of a realization than a decision - much like falling in love. I woke up one day and realized just how much perspective I glean from this man! He approaches life with a sort of melancholic optimism - depressed about himself and the state of things, but joyfully hopeful in Christ and how He redefines it all!! My own journey tends to ebb and flow in a similar pattern. I become bogged down into deep funks because of the grim broken reality I see in myself and all around me - that is, until I’m reminded again of where my true hope lies and how Christ loves to redeem and speak life into dusty bones!
