“Tell them to use their money to do good.
They should be rich in good works
and should give happily to those in need,
always being ready to share with others
whatever God has given them.
By doing this they will be storing up
real treasure for themselves in heaven —
it is the only safe investment for eternity!
And they will be living a fruitful Christian life
down here as well.”
~1 Timothy 6:18-19 TLB~
Summer Mixon is being transferred to Tulane tomorrow if all goes as planned. Her liver enzymes and bilirubin keep going up so they are moving her to where the liver specialist is located. Thank you to Donnie Stratton for taking care of our girl, we are so blessed to have you in our life. Thank you everyone for all the prayers, Jesus has this and we are believing that she will be healed.
Rev. Bill Ichter was the youth minister when I was a child. Later, God sent Jennie to Brazil to teach his grandchildren for two years. We stay connected.
Tomorrow,June 2,we celebrate 66 years of marriage. It will be a bitter sweet occasion. Joy and gratitude to God for these years;BUT sadness because my dear wife,-for sometime now has had Alzeimers, an illness that little by little takes all of the personality from the person. We are grateful to God,because if He had not given us long lives(I will be 90 this year, and she will be 85.) we would not have the problems we are having, problems that normally affect older people.
She has been a faithful and virtuous woman;admirable mother of 4 children she dedicated much of her time taking care of while I traveled all over Brazil and other parts of the world; an exemplary grandmother and great grandmother. God has been very merciful to us, because she perceives absolutely nothing. that is happening to her.,however those of us who take care of her see her precious personality disappearing little by little.I am so grateful to God for having brought Alana and Ron back after serving 31 years in Brazil exactly at this time that I need them so much.
