Monday Morning I Got a Big Surprise!

First of all, I didn’t know anyone was keeping track so you can imagine my surprise when I got this message from WordPress! It is very rewarding to realize that a 90 year old great-grandfather can still be used by the Lord in spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ!

In 2011, I had been reflecting on my genealogy and the sad fact I had no idea what my father and two grandfathers thought about the deeper spiritual facts that impact us all. I felt a sense of loss in knowing that I would never have the opportunity, this side of heaven, to have deeper conversations with them on spiritual matters!

My beloved wife had been suggesting I write a blog, but I objected that I was not a writer and had no business trying to write a blog. Then, I made a decision that a blog might be a way to communicate with my family the deeper thoughts I had about the Christian life in a format that could be available to them when they were ready and it was convenient for them. In July of 2011, I published my first blog.

My wife and I have been blessed by the opportunity to study the Bible under many notable teachers. The first that immediately comes to mind is Brother Burkes, pastor of Bay View Baptist Church in Norfolk, Virginia. The second was Bob Thieme, pastor of Berachah Church in Houston. Last, but certainly not least, was Brother John Bisagno, at Houston’s First Baptist Church.

In addition, after I retired from work, I was able to return to Dallas Theological Seminary, after a gap of 45 years, finish my work there and graduate in May of 2009.

My wife and I have enjoyed our lives as servants of the Lord Jesus Christ and rejoice in the rich blessings of a Holy Spirit filled life. We both recognize that we have been richly blessed by the Lord as each of us sought to faithfully serve our Lord and be faithful stewards of his word to our family and to others as we were enabled by the Lord.

My blog is written to share the blessings available to God’s children as they faithfully implement the word of God as a daily guide to life. My wife and I can testify that God’s way is the best way! I fully endorse 1 Timothy 2:15

“Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.”
