As I mentioned last week I am taking a bit of a writing break. Here is the second part of the interview continuing with Ron Malionek and the first part of Pastor Dick May. Dick was an amazing guy who shared Jesus with thousands of people. He had a special gift of evangelism and had no fear in sharing the Gospel. We graduated into eternity a few years ago and I miss him.
While I am on a writing break, I thought I would give some videos of some friends of mine who are members of CMA and appeared on a Local Access program in Gloucester, MA in 2009. Sherm Derring is first and he was our chapter's Road Captain at the time. He has an awesome testimony. Ron Malionek was President of our chapter at the time and is a very dear friend of mine. I had the honor of playing electric and acoustic guitar on his CD. These videos are dear to me.
My kids are grown now. Both have moved out of the house and are living lives that are independent of their parents. I am exceedingly proud of my kids and what they have accomplished in their lives. But in that pride is a bit of sorrow. I miss picking up my daughter and her beeping my nose, saying, with a laugh, “Boopies, I got you first!” I miss having deep conversations with my then four-year-old son. “Daddy, what ‘cuz the world to go in circles around the sun?” Yes, they had their times of disobedience, and they needed to be corrected from time to time. However, those memories have faded into the past. Mostly what remains are memories of happy, joyous times with my children.
