PRAISE THE LORD
"MY LIL' DARLING"
June 8th, 2018
We celebrate 58 years of marriage.
1960 When we ran away to get married. It cost $5.00 by the Justice of the Peace. I was financially broke, young, foolish, no job, no place to live, and worst of all, I was lost as to the Lord. Betty's dad, Raymond Jackson, led me to Christ 3 months later. At 22 years of age, I realized that I had dragged my wife and two children to live in five states, still broke, no education (finished the 10th grade), and no hope of anything getting better. Betty's dad told me that if I would slow down and let the Lord get in front He would guide me. I realized that my life was like pushing a rope. I stopped running, attended Florida Bible College in Miami, Florida, and only by the Grace of God has he allowed me to have a ministry preaching the gospel. WHAT A RIDE! WHAT A WOMAN TO HAVE STUCK WITH ME THROUGH THOSE TERRORIZING YEARS WITHOUT HOPE. THAT IS ABUNDANT GRACE.
