    Thanks much for the Proverbs month Steve. They spoke to me and my wife, and it has transformed us even more on our collective journey. As one in Christ, we are following his will for our life, against all earthly odds. He has us, and is teaching us daily. I look forward to future LivingReal words. Thanks again!

    Steve

  2. Thanks Steve……
    It was disappointing to hear that more men are not in tune with what is really important in life and that comes with a relationship with God. Everything else is secondary. Eternal happiness is at stake and the things of this world so often take us away from building this relationship.

    FEW find the path to happiness and eternal life and wide is the path, and MANY travel on the path of destruction and eternal damnation. This Mathew verse 13:7, straight from the mouth of Jesus, is sobering every time I think of it. We live in a fallen world and a guy like you, not afraid to share his faith, is what is needed (so very rare now a days), in today’s world. Be prepared to get persecuted for your speaking out about your faith but we know that God is looking favorably down on you!!!

    It was a pleasure being a part of this journey!

    Have a great weekend!
