Dad’s Last Christmas Gift

Before Dad passed away, he gave me a gift I’ll never forget. Can I share it with you?

From the APPC and the Lewis Family to yours, Merry Christmas.

    I like your thoughts of your father last important words to you,( many of us have been there as well as a young man ) and your message to us about the most imortant meaning of Christmas. ( you have a gifted tongue )

    I appreciate the message, Brandon. My dad and I had a very similar relationship, and while we can’t change the past, we can learn from it, and as you said, Jesus is more than willing to wash away the past and give us a new life in Him. The price that Jesus paid demonstrates His commitment to our success in Him. He sent me somebody to tell me about His free salvation, and in over 20 years, I’ve never once regretted deciding to accept it and follow Him.

      Thanks Gregory! Merry Christmas to you! The past is but the past… God sends some unexpected messengers. You never know when it’s your turn to be one!

    Thanks for your sharing.

    Just lost my father in-law this week and my dad a few years ago. With my painting clients we discuss what we wish our parents could of done. I agree with what your dad said, it’s the best I knew how. I was raised in a christian home and Christ has been my go to and friend all my life and I guess I’ll have to wait till heaven to build the relationship with my father. Without my mom or dad there would no me, so I do understand God has me right where I’m to be and I’m to make the most of it for His sake. Thanks for sharing you!
    Merry Christmas!

      Merry Christmas Steven! Thanks for your warming thoughts. We are living in the “already, but not yet” phase of our faith. Further along, we’ll know all about it…

“This year has been the biggest year of growth for us. We're double where we were last year. I realized the real money in this business is in the marketing of the services - not the doing of the services.”
