IMG_9621Open letter to all of my friends and family.  If you consider me a friend of yours read on.  If you are family read on.  If you are not one of the above it may be best to quit.


I’ve wanted to write you all a letter for some time.  I needed to get a few things off my chest and also a few things I felt I needed to say (not the same), so let’s begin.

I have made many mistakes.  If I have done you wrong I am sorry.  If you are quirked by something I have done in the past lets chat.  I would like to get that right.

With that being said I can’t live in mistakes forever.  I have said my whole life that “You can only do things about things you can do things about”.  I can’t go back but I can say I am sorry.

I have done a few things good in life.  For that I am thankful.  I am thankful for God letting me a part of some amazing things.  For the rest of my days I will hold onto those good things and look for more to be a part of.

For as long as I can remember, I have felt the need to serve.  I am asked quite often if I ever want to plant another church.  The answer is really easy for me.  Yes, I would love to plant again but… I will need the Lord Almighty himself to make that move abundantly clear.  I am willing but am I worthy?  Remains to be seen.

I am also asked quite a bit how I feel about divorce.  Well, I hate it and I believe that it is a sin.  It wrecks havoc on many lives far reaching the two that are involved.  I say that to say this.  It doesn’t have to destroy our lives forever.  There is a time where we search and find happiness no matter what has happened in the past.  I elect to find happiness.

I enjoy seeing people succeed even the ones that have said such horrible things about my family and friends.  To each of you that has been hateful I promise you I am rooting for you.  I want you to be successful and happy.  Most people speak evil because they are not happy with themselves.  I pray for you on that.

I have stood beside many families that have dealt with suicide or the attempt of suicide.  Can I tell you that you are not alone?  I promise you with everything that I have that I will be standing by.  Call or come see me anytime.  We can make it pass that hurdle.

I believe God has a plan for all of our lives.  No matter your age the plan is still in motion.  I believe also that we must seek.  We can’t sit around in our houses waiting to see what God will do.  Let’s search it out and find our way.  I believe that is what he ask.  Faith without works is dead.

So let me wrap this up with the following.  A dear friend posted this the other day and I thought it was perfect.  Know this,  I love each of you.  I am thankful for all of you.
