Thoughts on a plan for our lives

As I mentioned in the previous entry, Marcia and I took a brief vacation...hence the lower number of blog entries.

We were in South Carolina visiting family. I have a simple observation about family. Even though our kids have their own occupations and their own lives, they are, indeed, more aware of the plight of prisoners because of their dad's involvement in HFP.

Case in point.

I was sitting in church with our daugher Sue, her husband Jon, and 11 year old twin grandsons Brenden and Zachary.

Pastor Todd Cullen, of Hilton Head Island Community Church, was embarking on a series of sermons about Moses.

His key point in this sermon, based on the life of Moses: God is fully aware of all the circumstances surrounding our birth into this world, the way we were raised as children, and all the mistakes we've made along the way. We can believe that he will use the circumstances of our past to accomplish his plan and purpose for our lives.

As he repeated this point to the congregation, Sue leaned over to me and said, "Dad, this would be perfect for you to give to prisoners."

She was right, of course.

And it's perfect to pass along to you.
