We met by mistake. A guy he had just met...mistook me for another girl. And in the embarrassing moment that followed...Jeff Cash entered my world for the first time.
We talked for 30 minutes tops. And then we walked away. This is what I thought:
1. That guy LOVES Africa.
2. I'm not interested in dating him.
3. He has a very unique faith.
4. He has guts.
Well. It is now 14 years later. I've been Mrs. Cash for 13 of those years. Somewhere along the way...I changed my mind about #2. But all the other first impressions still stand.
When you live with someone for awhile...you begin to see all that they aren't and all that they are.
And one thing my husband is...is Courage.
I have never met anyone that can rival the guts that exist in this man. Trips to the Congo, ferry flights across continents, relief work in the rebel crisis, walking away from salary, walking up to strangers and talking about his God, challenging crowds and mobs,standing by his dreams and convictions even when the outcomes seem bleak ...His courage has and continues to... significantly rock my world.
I sit where I sit tonight...serve where I serve today...know and experience the nation around me....
Because Jeff didn't fear. Or quit. Its just not in him to do so.
Happy Birthday Fearless One.
Just what does God have in store for you next?
