All things good... All are invited...

Chuck here again... Guest posting. 

This post has two purposes.

1. This goes back to a post the other day from Kathy about our life as viewed from the blog.  We do live a pretty normal life and do have our fair share of problems, disagreements, disciplining issues, heated fellowship.... you get the point.  One thing Kathy and I do, and have done, is that we don't lay down without being at peace with one another.  This principal comes from Ephesians 4:26 "In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold".  It's just not worth it.  Let me stop here and say that if you are searching for an answer to one of life's many questions... give God a chance to answer it... try the Bible.  So, here is the gist of what I want to say in point 1.  As you sit on the front row of our life and peer in the window know this, Anything you see that's good comes from the One True God.  It has nothing at all to do with our smarts, degrees, achievements, job, house, car.... you get the point.  I want any and everybody to know that if it were not for Jesus I would not be in the place I am today.  Our marriage is what it is today because of what God has done with the broken piece we'll continually bring Him.  I give Him all the glory!  We hope this blog exudes Jesus and gives hope to those that may have lost it somewhere along the way.  Here is another great pearl from the Word of God: Acts 10:34 "And Peter opened his mouth and said: Most certainly and thoroughly I now perceive and understand that God shows no partiality and is no respecter of persons".  Wow!! What He does for one, He will do for another!

2. We would like to invite any and everyone to the Will Graham Celebration this weekend at the Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum.  These free services will be held Friday and Saturday night at 6:30 and Sunday night at 6:00 pm.  We have invited a lot of folks and would love to see them come.  I believe this event is going to be big and I am excited to see what God's going to do.  I believe in Unity and believe the Church is coming together from all denominations and we will in one voice praise the King.  If you are new to this thing... God LOVES it when we praise Him.  There is going to be some great music from some of the leading Christian artist and a great message of Hope from Will Graham.  Will Graham is the grandson of the great Billy Graham and has the same evangelistic call of his life.  We are going to have a wonderful time each night.  If you would like to go and don't want to go alone, email us and we would love to have you join our family.  Here's a link to the event where you can find all the info you'll need.

Be Blessed!

That is so cool! What an inspiration this post is! Thanks Chuck!

We actually used to live a couple of apartments down from Will when we were at Seminary in Wake Forest. It's great that he is following in his father and grandfather's footsteps! I wish I could go with you guys!!

Hi Chuck,
What an awesome post!!! Yes, God is definitely the reason for it all and thank you for your wonderful words of hope. I am also excited about Will Graham and I know God will use him to do some extraordinary things. Me and Mom are so happy we got to meet you, Kathy, and Maggie in China. May God continue to bless you and your precious family.
