Dear Friends,

Welcome to June!  This is a month of celebrations in our house.  My birthday is in the beginning of the month and then, more importantly, Barb and my wedding anniversary shortly follows.  In a few days, my bride and I will be celebrating our 49th year of marital bliss.  It is in times like this that I often reflect on and smile at how blessed I truly am.  Barb and I have had an amazing journey together, and what began as just the two of us has become a wonderful family including two children and eight grandchildren.  I celebrate and thank God for Barb daily as she is the very definition of the woman described in Proverbs 31.  She is my best friend, my biggest supporter, and a faithful companion that I am lucky to travel this road with. I am a blessed, blessed man!


P.S.  Please remember me in your prayers as you read this letter.  I am recovering from bilateral knee replacement surgery and beginning physical therapy.  Pray for favor, physical healing, and patience (mostly for Barb).
