Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
We live in a world that denies miracles and begs for evidence and facts. Commitment is no longer a covenant if it’s not convenient. But God’s light of truth continues through the ages to shine in the darkness, changing hearts from the inside out, whether the darkness likes it or not. For this Christmas season and the end of an often tumultuous 2014, we had to share this true story of a couple we know and love dearly. Please feel free to share as you might need to. And may it make your resolve in an Almighty God solidify into an unwavering confidence that cannot be shaken.

This is a very special anniversary for us and Cindy let me share this because we know someone out there may need it……
In high school I met this cute little cheerleader they called Pigeon. I took her away from a good, safe home and stole 18 years of her life. I didn’t set out to do this, but that’s what happened. We don’t live in a world that tolerates her kind of commitment. We don’t understand it and it makes us angry. When I look back my heart is so broken for her, but she knew about things that I didn’t understand yet. She talked to the sky and I didn’t understand that either, but I was glad she did because she found peace there. I would try to do better, but failed every time.
18 years later we were broke and homeless. I was shattered and I deserved it, she was gone and the only thing I knew to do was talk to the sky. I did and she was right, even without a promise that anything would get fixed, I had peace.
She didn’t know where her prayers would take her, but she always knew they were heard. Maybe for the first time ever, I wanted more for her than myself. I hoped her prayers would take her somewhere safe. They brought her back to me and I have had the most unbelievable, undeserved 18 years humanly imaginable.
Thank you so much God. Thank you so much Cindy for 36 years.
