My brother

Please remember in your prayers my brother James and his family.  He is in the middle of a terrible audit at his company, where he is an accountant, and he may be the sacrificial lamb, so to speak, as it's not turning out well.

Prayers...

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Friends in Christ,

I just wanted to let you all know that my brother accepted a new position closer to home for more money yesterday just in the nick of time.  His previous company (who has done all they can to make his life miserable for the past year) is going through a big shake-up and he's very luck to be getting out. 

Thank you again for all your prayers and Glory to God in the Highest!
