  1. TO MY PRECIOUS SON,

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT SWEET NOTE… I REMEMBER IT AND ONCE AGAIN IT BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES…

    IN THE FLESH I CANNOT HELP BUT BE PROUD.

    SO MANY PEOPLE SAY TO ME, ” MY YOU MUST BE SO PROUD”, WHEN THEY SEE OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN AND THE MINISTRIES IN WHICH GOD HAS PLACED THEM.

    I CANNOT TAKE CREDIT AT ALL.

    I CAN NOT PRAISE THE LORD ENOUGH FOR CHOOSING MW AND FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE.

    I REALIZE THAT IN SPITE OF THIS BEAUTIFUL, THOUGHTFUL NOTE, I MUST NOT ALLOW MYSELF TO BE PROUD. I MUST FALL ON MY FACE BEFORE MY PRECIOUS LORD AND THANK HIM FOR ALL HE HAS DONE IN SPITE OF ME.

    HE KNEW MY GREAT DESIRE TO HONOR HIM WITH MY LIFE AND MY GREAT DESIRE THAT ALL OF OUR EIGHT CHILDREN (FOUR NATURAL AND THEIR SPOUSES), GRANDCHILDREN AND NOW NINE GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN, WOULD ALL GROW TO LOVE THE SAVIOUR WITH ALL OF THEIR HEARTS ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE.

    I STILL PRAY FOR THIS WITHOUT CEASING FOR THAT IS STILL MY GREATEST DESIRE.

    MY LIFE MOTTO IS –
    “SINGING HIS PRAISE!
    AND AS I APPROACH MOTHER’S DAY THIS YEAR I CAN TRULY SING….
    “I’M OVERSHADOWED BY HIS MIGHTY LOVE”
    “I’D RATHER HAVE JESUS THAN ANYTHING”
    “THERE IS NO GREATER LOVE”
    “DEEPER AND DEEPER”

    I COULD GO ON…..

    THANK YOU AGAIN KEN
    (JUST THOUGHT SINCE YOU MADE YOUR LETTER PUBLIC THAT I SHOULD RESPOND.

    I LOVE YOU, DEARLY

  2. That was so nice Ken. My precious Mom has been gone 11 years now and it seems a lifetime ago that I heard her sweet voice. And yet I can hear her voice so clearly when I most need to. Take advantage of every moment that you have to be with your Mom, and to let her know how much you do love her. You have a wonderful son.

  3. My children and grandies are bringing me more JOY than you can imagine… and as I have said many times when the children ask what I want or need for a special day I truthfully have to say. “My greatest JOY is for them to serve God and be in the very center of His will everyday”.

    They always interpreted that as “Be Good”.

    I pray for all of them every day and though I would love to have them all closer geographically, I would rather have them close to God and faithful to HIM. This is my JOY.

    Some might interpret that as being a preacher or a missionary.or in full-time Christian service, but I mean being close to God everyday… There is no such thing as a “part time child of God”. It must be all or nothing.

    Thank you again, Ken, You are precious to me.
