Yesterday, August 6th, was the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima in 1944. God forgive us. It was also the celebration of 52 years of marriage to Dorothy who God gave to me saying, “Don’t let this one get away. You will never find another one like her… SHE will go the distance.”
Funny how a young Catholic sailor could hear His voice when He wanted me to, even as a heathen. He was right. She has stuck with me through all my sins, wanderings and thrashings-about until God could get a hand on me. She then has continued to be by my side through many years of wilderness and isolation (even when I was surrounded by Christians).
She has given us four fine children who have kids of their own. We are also blessed with ten grand-kids and one great grandchild. Besides being the keeper of our home and all the work that goes with that, she also is part of this ministry as she proof-reads all that we write and does the layout work on our books, prints them and does the mailings as well. “There is one who sticks closer than a brother.” I married her.
Thank you, Father, for sending your Son to not only take away our sins, but to be our saving Life within. Amen
