Super Saturday...It's Christmas Eve Eve

Don't you just love right now? It's the day before the day before! I love Christmas!

Today, I throw gasoline on you! Thank you for being the kind of person you are. Thank you for caring about others and, yet, finding yourself sick over how selfish you are on too many occasions. Thank you for believing God is awesome and, yet, finding you are plagued with a double-portion of Thomas's doubting.

Thank you for believing in me when I can no longer believe in myself. Thank you for seeing the good in me when I botch one effort after another.

Thank you for your patience when I am at the end of the rope with mine. Thank you for continuing to give to me when I am a huge taker.

You bless the world....and I'm glad I'm in on it. You thrill so many....and thank you for including time for me.

Have a Super Saturday!

Thanks for speaking to me today. Tomorrow, I promise, we will bring your presents from Ferg. That is, unless this sore throat I woke up with gets worse and I need Danna to stay home with me!!

You are so mean!

You need to be more like Brenda!

Thank you for blessing me in so many ways during the past year ... I still remember the wonderful way that Memorial blessed us last Christmas with items for our home that had been flooded by Katrina's surge. I will never forget your kindness, Terry. As I think back over the year I think about the gifts ... our "chance" meeting in Vicksburg as you were making your way to the Coast to bless us here ... the night I stood at Memorial and you and Marvin prayed for me before I spoke. Just before that I sat in the audience with tears falling down my face and you turned around and spoke words of comfort and strength that gave me such courage. My friendship with your son Dusty has been such an enormous blessing to my heart. It's been a year of tragedy and heartache and struggle ... and blessing and hope and friendship and Spirit. Thank you, Terry. Merry Christmas.

Terry, you have been blessing me for many years, not even knowing of my existence! I could never repay you for the encouragement you have been to me. I am sure there are literally hundreds and probably thousands who could say the same thing. I know you will continue to bless me, and many many others.

Merry Christmas my brother!

Terry, you are amazing to work with. Your phone call last night brought a tear to me eye. You are so encouraging and positive, and you inspire me to be more like Him.

I am so happy to work two doors down from your Cardinal Museum.

Terry, Merry Christmas Eve Eve to you too! I absolutely love being at a church where people are so happy to be there! You set the tone for that my friend and I can't thank you enough for it. I too never knew going to church could be so fun. Thank you for constantly bringing joy into the Kingdom life! I've told you before and I'll tell again, I just love the way God looks on you! You are one of a kind my friend, God shows up in you in an amazing way!
Love ya!
