Positive Post Tuesday

Well, it is Tuesday and I'm jumping on the Positive Post bandwagon. Brody Harper started all this a while back and I'm just now getting around to it.

Today, my positive post is about my homie Tim Keeler from my hometown. We became friends in high school and I always admired Tim. Mainly because he knew who he was and what he stood for.

You see, Tim was a Christian when it wasn't "cool" to be a Christian out in public. You know, to unabashedly talk about God and Jesus and how He affects your life. He chose to be himself and not someone the crowds pushed him to be. And the most amazing things happened. People loved Tim and they never stopped. His easy way of sharing Christ and His love was so profound. I know I'm not the only one who Tim influenced like that. He lives out the words in 1 Peter 3:15:
But respect Christ as the holy Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to answer everyone who asks you to explain about the hope you have

Tim is a musician and an educator. I guess he always has been. Several years ago, with the help of a few friends (like Anthony!), Tim recorded and released a CD called "Passing Conversations" that I can highly recommend.

Just recently, Tim has set out on a journey halfway around the world. He has moved to Japan where he will teach English as a second language. I'm positive that he will end up teaching more than that while he is over there.

God bless you, Tim Keeler, and Godspeed to you.

Hi - I liked this PP you put up on Brody's blog. Tim sounds like an amazing man after God's heart. What a blessing to have someone like that in your life. Particularly in those young years ya know? I also love the scripture you posted. One of my favs. So important. Such a good reminder and helps to re-focus and keep us aware and ready. Thanks for sharing this.

God bless you and your family -
