There are some things that I really like about being at THQ – the coffee isn’t one of them – but these kind of events are Being able to participate in special events and groups is of great interest to me and this was a good group.
Thanks to John who recorded this on his iPhone.
Here’s a tip of the hat to succession of leadership – of course the women are missing and they are equal partners so I tread carefully – but here’s myself, Eddie and John.
Our appointments to Glenmore Temple with our wives Wendy, Genevera and Donna span from 2000 to the present.
If only Larry and Velma had been around we could have got a photo spanning 1995 to present…next Congress perhaps.
It was good to be together in Mississauga and to enjoy the company of fellow believers, fellow Salvationists!
Today Wendy and I, with Cath, Terry, Noah and Laura will be joining Mom for a Mother’s Day in St. Catharines. After church we’ll be headed out for dinner – and we will reflect again on the great heritage we have in our parents.
Everybody has a mother but not everyone has a good mother. I’ve learned that through 31 years of ministry! Some people are burdened with their mother – whether it be by mental health issues or family dysfunction for some mother’s day brings on a meaning not understood by those of us who grew up in a nurturing home.
So once again – though we’ve said it a thousand times or more – we are grateful to our Mom for her deep love and care. And by saying so we imply thanks to her Mom and those who brought influence on our homes of our ancestors. We are blessed indeed.
And in being blessed we are also responsible to take what God has so graciously given and to use it the advantage of our children and grandchildren. Love gives birth to love and care brings about more care.
So thank you Mom once again for being a gracous, godly Christian lady who gave us so many wonderful gifts.
