Birthday Remembrances !
Birthday remembrances of our beloved husband and father, Tom. A follower of Christ and devoted husband and father.
Happy birthday, Tom! We miss you so much but we are grateful for the years we had together and for the legacy you left behind.
A trip to Charleston, S.C.
Always a hard worker:)
Collecting wood for a future house or barn:)
Trip to Polyface Farm in Virginia to learn more about farming techniques.
Your love of working with wood and building things blessed so many:)
So often seen with a little one at your side or sitting on your lap.
May the lessons you taught - reverence for and devotion to God, hard work, respect for others, and sacrificial love - remain and be lived out, by God's grace, in our lives and in the lives of all future generations.
"So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom." Psalm 90:1
"For we know that if our earthly house, after this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." II Corinthians 5:1
A Puritan Prayer
Fill the garden of my soul with the wind of love,
that the scents of the Christian life may be
wafted to others;
then come and gather fruits to thy glory.
So shall I fulfil the great end of my being -
to glorify thee and be a blessing to men.
