About the Author
I have always loved the section in the Old Testament book of 1 Samuel
where it describes how Samuel set up a stone in the middle of the
desert and gave it a name. Ebenezer. The stone of help. The idea
behind this was to have a tangible place to remind the people how God
had pulled them through a lot of rough patches and was faithful. They
were instructed to tell the stories of this help whenever they came
upon the monument, to pass on the truth of God’s faithfulness so
that future generations would hear the stories and be encouraged.
These weren’t made up fairy tales of forgotten tribes in foreign
lands, they were true stories that these people had lived through and
experienced first hand. Samuel saw the need to pass these stories on
to their children so that they could understand that God was true and
unwavering for them just as He was for their parents. And,
prayerfully, they would continue the tradition.
recently created a book of stories from my life, a gift to my
children. The original is a complicated volume of images and words
reproduced online in hardback form. And expensive to recreate. Some
people have mentioned to me they would love to read it so I decided
to break it up into smaller chunks and offer it here in three
different formats. I will add to the series and, eventually, get all
of the stories posted for download. I hope you enjoy them, my own
Ebenezer, personal “stones of help,” to remind you that, up to
this point, the Lord has surely helped us. And He will continue to do
three follows a strange road trip with my friend Blaine as we
travelled two days from Atlanta to Minneapolis in order to spend two
days with our friends Ron and Eve. And then promptly drove for two
days to return home. Part travelogue, part stream of consciousness
rambling with an occasional visit from Jesus. Once at McDonalds.
