Let me begin by saying that I am a follower of Christ.
Many times I’m a falling follower, but even in those moments when my face is in the dirt, He reaches down and lifts my head out of the shame. I look up and am confronted with grace. Then I get up, dust off and keep following. What else can I do? Jesus has captured my heart.
I am a most fortunate husband – It was on August 1 that she said yes. It was on June 9 that she said “I do.” Ever since we have become a team. And we still are . . . becoming a team. I am most grateful for my wife.
Two life changing moments were the births of my sons. I have had the privilege of watching those kids become fine, young men. And yes, I write that because they are mine. I secretly wish I could have been like them at that age. And there’s the beautiful daughter-in-law. The best I save for last – my wonderful granddaughter. She’s the first and brings great joy to our family.
After my faith and my family, there’s:
Pastor, Leader, Coach, Writer, Runner, Chocolate Chip Connoisseur, Tarheel Fan
I am grateful for the role GOD has assigned me in this world. Who gets the opportunity to . . .
Invest in others?
Shape their future?
Speak into their lives?
Laugh, cry and pray with people, occasionally in the same conversation?
Help them clear out the fog?
Envision a new future?
Get up and move forward?
Find hope for tomorrow?
Wow! What a life! This is awesome!
