This year we left on Christmas to spend time with a long time friend Lionel. He and I became friends in 1982 when he was our exchange student. We have remained friends for a long time. He invited my family to come snow ski in the French Alps this year and spend New Year’s Eve with him. It has been an amazing trip.
I was reminded this week that many things in life are incredible, but nothing pleases me more than to spend time with Vickki and Barhon and the rest of my extended family. These days around the table eating and laughing together have blessed me and encouraged me greatly. God has blessed me immensely and Inwill praise him in good times and challenging times. He’s the God of the mountain and the God of the valley.
I am the Worship Pastor at First Baptist Church, Statesboro Georgia.
