There could hardly be a better blog post than one devoted entirely to letting you know how much you mean to us!
First off, thank you from your firstborn! Thank you for bringing me into the world. And thank you for answering my questions on Easter morning, April 21, 1983, showing me the way to be born again spiritually: as a child of God!
Just today, on the bus and in Morgantown, God gave me the chance to share Christ with three people–and more than that besides overheard and listened as I shared the good news. With Christ, life is the greatest drama of all and I can say there is nothing I look forward to more, than seeing the Lord use me in as many ways as possible to build on what you have given and share it with other people.
In many real and practical ways your life sings: “That I may know Him in whole not in part . . . this is the deepest desire of my heart!” Because of your sincerity and your patience, we (all 8 of us!) have grown to love and appreciate how God’s ways work. It’s a joy to share with others because you encouraged us to prove what is true in our own lives. God bless you with more and more multiplied fruit! Thank you again Mom! The joy of the Lord continue be your strength.
