I’m closing out a couple sweet days of ministry in Texas this evening. The Duggar Family was here, Tom Harmon, Rick Grubbs and Don Richardson.
The sun is setting. The trees are in full green leaf and the Wood Thrush is ringing evening vespers. A train whistle blows in the distance. It is balmy, cool. Gentle air stirs the breeze. The Dogwoods here have already flowered.
I made some new friends like Dave Stelzl and renewed fellowship with some dear friends. We left some of them tonight with joyful, grateful tears in our eyes.
Ken, Penny and Kimberly Krause were here. We shared a meal. “There is no pleasure on earth so great as a circle of Christian friends by the fire,” said Jack Lewis, and about that he was right.
