Craig – I hope you know how much I love you and how very thankful I am for you!
There are so many reasons why I am grateful for you!
I always wanted a “big brother” and I am thankful God brought you into our lives. And, you have been a wonderful big brother – you have provided guidance, given grace & shown love. I am so very thankful for that!
While I can share the many other reasons why I am thankful for you (not including you beating me in a foot race when I was a teenager), the greatest of them all is your faith! When I think about where I am today in my walk with Christ, I know that I wouldn’t be here without you. While Tammy helped me onto that path, she had that opportunity because you helped her first. Your relationship with Christ is a wonderful example to us all!
I also want you to know how very proud I am of you! I know this year didn’t start out as you had planned. Many others who experience something as serious as a heart attack, turn away from faith – especially when they experience it just after starting to get their health back on track. They could use it as an excuse to not continue on the road to health. You, on the other hand, took this opportunity to put your health first. You have seen God’s Hand through this experience and have shared that testimony with so many others. Your love of God and your willingness to share has brought others to Christ.
Craig – I truly hope you know how much I love you, and how grateful I am for you!
