A wheelchair or demon or anything on earth can’t stop you from serving Jesus. That’s what I learned from Frank Howard.

When he invited me into his room one day in 2009, he shared his testimony with me.

When I saw and heard about his love for Jesus, I didn’t see a man sitting in a wheelchair. I saw a man standing tall for Jesus full of courage and strength.

Even though he was quiet while we were around, that time we shared together, I could sense his spirit. He was shouting for joy about how much he loves Jesus.

I admire men and women of God who don’t let their problems get in the way of their serving Jesus.

This was written in memory of Frank who went to be with the Lord in May 2011.  Frank served as a Bible teacher in Special Gathering, a ministry within the mentally challenged community,  for more than 10 years.

Eating fish
We all know that when you eat fish you will usually come across a bone or two no matter how carefully the fish has been filleted.  We also know that the bones aren't digestible and should be spit out.  Fish bones, in fact, can be dangerous; but that fact never kept me from eating and appreciating

A history lesson
Over the past months, I've discovered the classics from Sir Walter Scott, James Fenimore Cooper, St. Augustine to Andrew Murray.  Of course, most of these volumes were written in the early 1800's.  Unlocking the labyrinth of historical fact wrapped around the old English prose of that earlier cent
