Christmas and Friendship

We have a couple we met in New Bern about 4 years ago and they have become our friends. We were sitting at the kitchen table in their home one night and I realized that I wanted them to be able to meet some of the friends that we have met because of a common […]

Our Freedom

Our freedom A high price A price that changes people forever A price that pierces a mother’s heart A price that makes sleepless nights for fathers A price that makes children fatherless A price that makes single mom’s or dad’s Never do I want to take for granted that High Price Gratuitude One of the […]

God’s Providence of Timing

In March when we were traveling through the Kansas City area I was able to see my friend Jean. Jean talked to me about retiring from Little Treasures sometime this summer. (of 2012) At that time I did not think too much about returning to Olathe anytime soon as Ron and I had just traveled […]
