  16. 16. I’m not sure how much longer I have left but it appearsthat the physical and medical signs are all pointing to myend.And, what a great time to go, right at Christmas-time.Just wonderful.The time my Saviour was brought into the world is the verysame time he decides to call me home. The irony isastounding.While I struggle to find any logical rhyme or reason in all ofthis my commitment to following Him has not changed.People look at me like I’m crazy. How can I trust God todeliver me from this madness, when this madness meanslosing my wife and two beautiful children? And the answeris, I simply don’t know.
  17. 17. It’s the light that permeates thebrokenness. It’s the light that the threewise men followed that night when Christwas born. It’s the light that just came to bewhen God said: “let there be light” on thefirst day of creation. It’s unexplainable. Andas I said before even though it makes nosense, I will follow it until my very end.It’s the light that shines for every man andwoman, and thankfully it shines for me,lest I be lost in the darkness that surroundsme without it.Thank you for journeying with me this far. Ipray you find the same peace I have.
  18. 18. How do I stay tanked up? He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.Even youths grow tired and weary, and youngmen stumble and fall; But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
