Recently I have observed several 'life stories' on various blogs. I would share mine but it really is non-eventful. I was raised in a Christian home with a wonderful family - I never saw my mother or father drink alcohol or smoke - they were great parents. I have never drank a beer, only tasted wine on occasion, the most alcohol I have had has been in cough syrup! We have had our family crisis' and have worked through them. Soooo, papa's life story would be boring.
However, it has been exciting. I have been married to mama longer than most of you have lived, except Tam is catching up quickly (birthday tomorrow - 11/14)! Mama and I have been married 43 years.
Some of you have been through serious crisis' and some are still going through crisis'. As I read your stories, see your lives unfolding, I take them very personally, so does mama. A significant portion of our time in prayer, every evening, is for you - our blogging family. We see this as a ministry - a very personal one. Some of you have visited our home, we have visited yours, we have hugged, wept and prayed together. We have emailed and talked on the phone.
I just wanted you to know that mama and papa care. When we pray for our children, our son and our daughter each evening and throughout the day, we also think of you, by name and whisper that name to Jesus.
If you have burdens and prayer requests, pass them on to mama and I. We care about you.
Sorry, can't give you money, that goes to Amos for hay!
