I am a friend of your dad’s from many years ago. He has shared your blogs before; but this is the first time I remember being offered to write a response. It is wonderful to get to meet you through your writing!
Your paragraph regarding livelihood reminded me of my reading this morning. I read Hebrews 9:14 ~”How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” Why did he do all this? So we could serve the Living God! Thank you for serving our God and for sharing. So happy you have a single speed bike for a while at least! What an answer to prayer!
In His love,
