I grew up listening to this man, and as I watched this video, what he terms his final message to the world - recorded in his home and aired for his 95th birthday, I cannot help but reflect that his final message is the same as his first message: The Cross, first, always, and only The Cross. What a steadfast, committed life. What a reflection of the One served in the one who serves. God bless you, Billy Graham. And thank you for your life of humility and service.
Some of my friends may remember that one of my recent posts (which was still months ago) was about the light at the end of the tunnel perhaps not being a train. Well, at last I'm approaching that light, and I suppose I could describe it now more like a taxi. Explanation: that job interview that I had months ago finally bore fruit, and I have been offered a position. It will not begin until December, unless finances are found which will allow me to start sooner, but since my current job vanishes state wide at the end of December, knowing I will be able to transition to this new position definitely allows me to draw a good deep breath for the first time in months. I just want to say thank God!
