I remember when I was a very young Christian getting discouraged about a matter within our church family. I went to the pastor’s office and talked with him a good while about the incident and asked for prayer and instruction. Because my husband and I worked on the church staff, Dr. Hutson was not only my spiritual leader, but my employer. My needs concerned him and he wanted to help. He wisely gave me sage advice that I have tried to remember since that time.

“Remember His marvelous works that He hath done, His wonders and the judgments of His mouth” (1 Chronicles 16:12).

My friend, Dr. Ron English, a man of God with whom I worked for many years, sent this thought to me today, and it is fitting because another friend asked me this week what got me through the really rough spots of life.

“Don’t wait to do the things in life that you have always wanted to do. Life is short. Live every day.”

I have given much thought to a Father’s Day message for all the wonderful men that deserve to be treated very special on this, their weekend. I have long thought that dads often got a bum deal when compared to the lavish celebrations planned for mothers, and I wanted to do something to help equalize the holidays.

So much written material crosses my desk in a week’s time that I often feel bogged down just reading the titles, much less the entire articles. If you have been writing in any regular area for a number of years, your name gets on many lists, and often people who think they know you far better than you think they do send material, ask for ideas about writing, offer help, and ask for referrals, just to name a few of this week’s requests. However, one article came to me this week that I read word for word – twice.
