Happy Birthday Johnny

Today would have been our son Johnny’s 32nd birthday.  I cannot express in words how much we miss him, nor could words tell you how much he enriched our lives.  In three days we will  be holding our first ever “Living In Spite Of Conference.”  The ministry we started because the Lord blessed us with caring for Johnny for 28years.  Johnny has a legacy of overcoming many challenges with a smile on his face.  He LIVED his life in spite of his trials.  He didn’t allow his circumstances to overcome him, he overcame them by the strong spirit the Lord gave him.

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

Today, I just wanted to pay tribute to our son Johnny.  He inspired many lives in his short time on this earth and his influence carries on through this ministry.

May we all be able to leave a lasting impression on this world that the Lord will use long after we are gone.  Happy Birthday Johnny!!
