Many of you who have been following the story of our prodigal sons return.

The first blog I ever wrote about David was about raising him as a child here.
Then I began the story of his recent return here.
David has now begun his own blog, Wider Than The Sky.
His story starts at the bottom of his page so please scan down and begin there with the Origin Of The Species.
This story, as you will see, is not a pretty one. What story of a Prodigal is?
But, as with all who turn their lives over to Jesus, it will have a wonderful ending.
These first four segments he has written are the beginning of the bad times.
He will be adding to them and I trust you will bookmark his blog and follow along.
Mickey, David & I appreciate your interest in our story and the many prayers that have been offered for us and our extended family.
It is a very exciting time for all of us.
We serve a wonderful, mighty GOD who can, and does reach out and snatch us from the very pits of hell.
This is OUR story.

My eyes are wet as I have just left his blog.

I am humbled that the silence for 10 years was your burden. I am even more thankful that I know you.

You are the example that I pray I am to my children.

Thank you Susan and Mickey. I am praying for you.
