>Refreshed by Time

>I know we live in a fallen world, wherein creation growns; but there are parts of this planet that are stunning, amazing, and beautiful-beyond-description. Those adjectives apply to the days and nights we spent on Bald Head Island, just off Southport, NC.

I can’t find adequate words to describe the “times of refreshing” that I received personally, and the blessings upon blessings Abba threw down on us.

From long individual talks with my sons, to two-hour solo bike rides each early morning, to Bible reading on a deserted beach, to fantastic food, lots of laughs…pretty-close-to-perfect weather…health…and so much more…

A picture may tell a thousand words, but these don’t do justice to Bald Head:

                                                   Beaches were unbelievable crowded…NOT!

                                                    Sun up or Sun down…gorgeous stuff

                                                  Go on the dunes, pay a five hundred buck fine

                                                       Jacob & I hiked trails

    At the conservatory, Jacob wondered how much of him the shark could get in its mouth

                                              Janelle enjoyed taking pics throughout the days

                                           Only transportation on Island? Feet, bikes, golf carts

                  “Old Baldy”….the lighthouse…reminding us of the Lighthouse!

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
