A New Day

Well, today we were honored for 33 years of active ministry. Along with Pamela and myself was our youngest son, his wife, our grandson and Papa, Pam's father.

The pastor roasted me a little, very many kind words were spoken, a few 'jabs' were slung at me (in jest) and love filled our hearts. Thanks to all of you for your kindness.

You know, ministry is not a job, it is an opportunity. I would never have chosen this as a career, but I'm so glad I didn't have a choice, God made it for me.

I sang a song today, God Leads Us Along.

Some through the water, some through the flood,
Some through the fire, but all through the blood.
Some through great sorrow but God gives the song;
In the night season and all the day long.

God surely has seen us through each day and every 15 minutes of time.

More to blog later.
