Congratulations Graduate

Another milestone - Amy has officially graduated from high school and she has the diploma to prove it! We're so proud of her accomplishments; we look forward to great things as she enters nursing school in the fall.

"Commit your way to the Lord", the Scripture says. That's just what she is doing as she pursues a career that helps others through their illnesses and hurts. May God bless her endeavors.

We'll celebrate her achievements with a small party this weekend with family and friends. The weather should hold up well. If I can find the camera patch cord, I'll upload photos.

The Living Cross

We hope you all experienced the blessing of the Resurrection. Our family participated in the 22nd annual Living Cross at our church. Over 8,000 visited the event and 70 decisions were made during the 8 presentations. "What a blessing!" said one of our fellow vocalists.

One of the things I learned from the Living Cross was the fact that Christ came to die alone so that we may never live without Him. " This truth was reinforced as a fellow singer nearly fainted right next to me. I grabbed him and helped him get down to the lobby where a paramedic worked on him till an ambulance arrived. Thankfully he will be OK but I was determined to stay with him until help arrived. The Lord promises to be with us forever. "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." One of the most comforting passages of Scripture is found in Romans 8:38 ".... nothing will ever separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." Can you fully grasp the extent that Jesus Christ went in order to bring life to you?

May we live daily with the profundity of this truth.
