I have had four different careers throughout my life. During the third career, I worked with my wife, owning and managing a gift and floral shop for twenty-five years. We managed to send our two kids through college but realized that our retirement plans could not be part of this business. God was closing a door but opening a window, as the old saying goes.
My wife, Anne, joined me for the fourth and final career. We became senior residential managers for the two Christian group homes owned by the Fredericksburg Baptist Church. One home housed six ladies, and the other home next door housed six men.
What a wonderful journey we had for fourteen years. We were there when the seed was planted in the Special Friends Sunday school class and helped nurture it to a reality when the first home opened in 1993.
We learned so much from the residents with their simple and strong faith. This was the most rewarding and enjoyable career that I could have wanted. It wasn't a job; it was a wonderful experience and adventure
