July 4th was a great day of fellowship with friends of ours, the McCreary's. We had a great day of fellowship, fun, food, and a lot of laughs. It was a great cup of coffee, if any of you know Roger McCreary you will have to ask him. It took a lot of work for it, but we each enjoyed a couple cups of coffee. It is amazing what we try to use to fix it, but I will keep that a secret.

Our kids really enjoyed the time together with riding their 4-wheeler, playing with their dogs, enjoying fireworks, and the excitement of lighting of the fuel. We look forward to many more times together.

Let me fast forward to this week. I have been a bachelor it this week, while Pam and the kids are at CCYC and will be home tonight. As I have stated in previous posts, I believe in getting my children to youth camps where they can associate with the type of youth I want them to marry. God has given them a great camp and I am they have gone to CCYC...It is worth it.

God Bless,



Life is Fragile

Good Morning,

It is great to live in a free country and live a great life that God has given me. This past week we have enjoyed a time of fellowship with the visiting of my wives parents. It changes the routine, but it is great to have different ones come and visit. I always want to take time to enjoy life's greatest values...Family.

This week I was at the hospital late at night with a family who lost a father and a companion. The gentleman was 40 years old and ended up having a heart attack. I am reminded how fragile life is. Take time for your family this week, and make sure you enjoy the holiday in celebrating the freedoms we enjoy. God still is in control no matter what the media says. Enjoy today, because tomorrow may never come and then you will always regret not saying that extra, "I love you" or whatever your heart says.

May God Bless You, and God Bless America.
