Hi Again Everyone,
I hope this month of November has been good to you. It has been AMAZING to me. I am writing to you as I prepare for another day's end a a mad dash across town to my bowling league, (which is my outlet and an undercover small group…)
Now, what you see below was supposed to be my Facebook status update from my birthday and now I am forced to put it out this way so that I can get the link and add it to Facebook.
Because Facebook has allowed us to add tons more text, but the truth is that I was so affected by yesterday and today that I could not contain it to the now expanded 400 words. So, here is my loquacious response…
Sorry FB for the overload…
It started with Facebook posts, text messages, emails, letters and cards. There were the gifts from my wife and kids, especially the puppy dog sticker for Anna's window in my car, (which I totally needed to compliment the LMNOP Daycare magnets on my street racing, speed shifting Honda Prelude family car!!!!!)
Then came the surprise birthday potluck party at the house with well-wishers, celebrators friends and family. And didn't stop there. The sheer volume of encouragements and words were overwhelming and that doesn't even take into account all the amazing favorite foods, desserts, Heaven's Bakery cookies and the awesome "Icing for Joy" Red Velvet Toolbox Cake!
I am so thankful for all of you. We read every one of the posts on Facebook to end the night and the truth is, family and friends, I would not be able to continue living this life, pushing the envelope, striving to see change in nations and working daily to grow leaders, a community of faith, international development, micro finance, humanitarian work and micro-enterprise if it were not for this volume of encouragement. GOD used every one of you in my life yesterday!!!!
I you ever wondered if youve ever been used by GOD, i am here to tell you that yesterday you were and it was PERFECT!!!!
I love every one of you. I miss many of you and want to simply say thank you. You made my year!
All I do from here is partially a result of your faith, prayer and words.
Bless you all!!!!!!
Wish I could have been with you all this birthday!
Blessings and Thank you!!!!!
