I’ve been busy preparing the story for the week. This time I had to put in some extra effort to make it special for the upcoming Father’s Day. I adapter a picture I had used in Bolivia many years ago to illustrate an article on the family. Here it is, for you to enjoy, and also as a reminder that with Jesus in the family we have a happy home.
I have been so blessed to grow up knowing Jesus, loving Jesus, serving Jesus. Nothing compares to the joy of having him in my life. I cannot imagine even a nanosecond without his presence. He is the air I breathe. He is everything to me, and with everything, I mean EVERYTHING!
I didn’t get around to writing my blog yesterday. My appointment with the doctor threw everything off track. It’s a drive from the north part of town to the south end, and the heat exhausts me. Once again I fell asleep at the computer (you’ve heard that before about me!). And I had to work on my Spanish story, which is about a boy who wanted his dad to come with him to church. God answered his prayers and one evening the dad accompanied his boy to church. The Holy Spirit worked on his heart and the man accepted Jesus as his Savior and Lord. A life that had been chaotic was transformed. A home that had been chaotic was transformed.
That is the message I want to convey with my writing ministry—that Jesus can transform your life and your family.
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved-you and your household.”
I wish a Happy Home was more the norm than the exception. These days we hear about so many broken homes. Not many boys and girls grow up in a happy home. What can we do about it? We can do like the boy in my story. We can pray! Let’s pray for more Happy Homes!
