As described in Proverbs 27, I have many “brothers of encouragement” in my life who have helped to “sharpen” me.  These dudes have made me a better man.  I have a beloved brother who has been in my life since the 1980’s.  Another from the 90’s.   I have a beloved brother who is actually my uncle.  My grandmother was pregnant with him when my mom and dad were married.  None are biological brothers, but “Brothers in the Lord.”  I have many more than these:  the brother that is collaborating with me to do this blog…..a “brother” that is my son!

What a gift!
The years of openness have resulted in an unspoken treasure of fellowship.  Doing things together, experiencing life, praying and talking it out makes life better!
