    If someone could pass this on to DDW, I think she'd appreciate it.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. Ė St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    Last Glory Seed

    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...12573691240469

    Friends are Friendís Forever
    If the Lordís the Lord of them
    And a friend will not say never
    ĎCause the welcome will not end
    Though itís hard to let you go
    In the Fatherís hands we know
    That a lifetimeís not too long to live as friends.

    Brotherís and Sisterís,
    I am writing you to thank you for the journey we have shared together for so many years, we have walked a path together that has had many twists and turns. When I sat down many years ago to begin this journey I never dreamed that my life would be touched as much as it has been, never dreamed that Glory Seeds would become what it is. Your presence in my life has brought great joy to me as I have journeyed my path through the many challenges, it has been through your presence and prayer that I have overcome those obstacles and have been victorious.

    It is with both joy and sorrow that I am coming to you today, our journey has come to an end and now we must part. We have come to the point in our journey that brings us to a fork in the path, I have to take the path that God has laid out for me and you must continue on your path. While I may not be with you physically, I will always be with you. In the sweet and sacred place that is within each and every one of us we will still be together. When we started this journey together it was my dream that we could deepen our walk with God together, that we could learn from each other. Today my challenge to you is that you not let the work end here, this family we have built together is just the beginning of a work that is greater than you or I. Pick up the torch and continue the race, we are a blessed people and need to be a blessing to others. We are blessed to be a blessing, it is our calling to go forth and fulfill that calling. My mission for you is to go forth and bless!

    The time has come for us to part ways, however, this is not good bye! I leave you with these parting words by M. Dixson, As I travel down the paths of life, I long for the journeyís end for my destination is with my savior resting in the arms of my best friend.

    Written by Troy Piper for his Dad.
