  • Happy Father’s Day!

    I have been thinking about my father all day. I miss him. And I thank God for his continued influence in my life and ministry.

    My my called me to wish me a happy Father’s Day. She reminded me that she loves me and is proud of me. It was really special for me to hear that from her today.

    H.B. and Natalie picked out my Father’s Day gifts for the first time. I can tell which ones their mother did not help them select. But I loved the gifts they selected and the fact that they made the effort to get me something special.

    Today was Hailey’s first Father’s Day. She is the most special gift to me today.

    Some of the members used today as an excuse to do something nice for me. I am very grateful.

    I continued our series on the beatitudes of Jesus with a message on Matthew 5:8, which I labeled, “The Window in Your Heart.”

    I am really enjoying preaching the beatitudes. Too bad I only have two left. May the Lord the remainder of our study of the Sermon on the Mount.

    We had dinner with my pastor, Dr. Melvin Wade, and his family this afternoon. It was a good meal and great time of fellowship.
