Just Call Me ...

... Brett Favre.

The Sheepdog is "un-retiring".

Much like the great Hall of Fame and Super Bowl winning quarterback, when I signed off for what I thought would be the last time back in December, I had no intention of ending up "back in the game'. I honestly did not. However, here I am to announce that The Sheepdog is back. He's open for business.

There is one main reason I am doing so. When I received my heart transplant in 2007, I knew instantly when waking up from surgery that my life had changed. I could literally feel life pulsing through my body for the first time in a long time. Laying in ICU praying a few days later, the Lord very strongly impressed upon me to tell everyone what He had done for me. I felt it was not only imperative for me to do so in order to be obedient to Him, but also as a way of helping others receive the same "2nd chance" I had just been given.

Over the last month, or so, I've come to realize that this blog is one of the best ways for me to do just that. Advocating for organ and tissue donation is my calling. You don't just "retire" from a calling - especially not when the Creator of the universe is the one who called you.

Also, to make following The Sheepdog blog more convenient, it now has a Facebook page. To locate and "Like" the page, just click here, or on the Facebook logo at the top of the right sidebar.  If some of the previous Blogger issues continue, it may be that one day, I completely move the blog's activities to Facebook.

Posts will start soon. I'll see ya on the web.
