All posts for the month January, 2014


 Hebrews 10: 24-25 state: “And let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more, as you see the day drawing near.” NASB Updated Version

I can truly say I am blessed with GREAT friendship. They come in different ages, different careers, but all have one thing in common: They love the Lord. To my friends, I want to say thank you for being men of God and giving me an honest, down to earth example of how to live for Him!


I read where J.C. Penney said, “Give me a stock clerk with a goal and I’ll give you a man who will make history. Give me a man with no goals and I’ll give you a stock clerk.”. I don’t want to be a stock clerk; I want to change history, so here are my goals listed in no particular order, but I am categorizing them in the following: Life Goals, Family Goals, Personal Goals.


  • Leave an inheritance to my children
  • Leave a legacy for my grandchildren
  • See my entire family come to know Christ
  • Celebrate 50 years being married to Robin
  • Become financially independent


  • Have ALL my children and their spouses and grandchildren celebrate at least one Christmas at my house
