My Brother Accepted Jesus!

(And he asked his lady friend, Doris to marry him...he is the guy in the front left of the picture in the red paper crown and Doris is seated next to him.!)




This was a very special Christmas for us! My brother Dan who just had a quadruple by-pass less than two weeks ago, accepted Jesus into his heart and shared it with all of us at our Christmas family gathering on Dec. 26th. He was in tears as he told me of the peace that he had now. He said he was so thankful for Jesus, and that this was his best Christmas ever! We are all rejoicing! And of course we are all praying for his recovery. He has had some very hard days...but we think he has turned a corner and is on his way to healing. Please continue to pray for his full recovery...and for spiritual growth in his new life with Jesus.



Joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
(Luke 15:7)





Thanks!

And may God richly bless you all in the coming New Year!

Oh Linda, that headline grabbed my attention! I get chills and want to cry whenever I hear news like this. I'm sure you've been praying for your brother for years and now to see this answer to prayer. Sometimes it takes a life threatening episode to realize our mortality. Whatever it takes, praise God.

I know that you are having a wonderful Christmas season. Love seeing the family photo, including Lynnette.

Blessings and love,
Debbie
