Someone Turns the Big 5-0 Today

Today is a really special day for me. My precious wife celebrates her 50th today! She is such an incredible woman -- the most Christlike person I have ever known. Yet somehow, she keeps getting better.

Happy Birthday, my Precious.

Speaking of Beverly, next Tuesday she leaves for Kenya. She will be gone for two weeks! In our 30 years of marriage, we have never been apart for that long. To make matters worse, she gives me these updates every day about al quida activity in Kenya.
Please keep her in your prayers as she goes to minister to missionary women from all over Africa.

Tomorrow afternoon, I will be taking Beverly away for a couple of days to celebrate. She doesn't know where (at least I haven't told her). I am really looking forward to some time away with her. To show you how much I am looking forward to it, I even skipped golf this week (there were a couple of gorgeous days for it) so I could get all my work done for the week.

Many, many people from our church will be leaving for different places this weekend -- being that it is spring break. A large number of our people are heading to Colorado for a ski trip. I pray God's blessings on each of you as you travel.

I hope Beverly has a wonderful birthday. I am guessing you are taking her away to your favorite golf courses for the next two days. I know the separation while she is traveling will be difficult. I will include you in my prayers for that trip and mission effort.

She is the youngest 50-yr-old I've ever known. May the Lord bless you with 50 more years of energy and enthusiasm.
Happy 50th!!!
