Celebrating 90 and counting

Celebrating 90 and counting

Last week I had the privilege of celebrating two very special people in my life, Mrs. Geneva who turned 95, and Mr. Bob who turned 90. When I think about these two, I am moved by their commitment to serve. Both continue to serve in various ministries; each are others-focused.

Recently I’ve seen a lot of posts on social media asking, “What’s your word for 2020?” I am praying that 2020 would be a year of DELIGHT in my life.
