    Mark – this is a really powerful, loving post. I appreciate your heart, and the grace you share it with.
    I really want my life to honor God as well, andI know the only way to get there is through his strength.

    Thanks for the encouragement…

    Thanks for including my site in your “blogroll.” I am so glad I have been able to share something meaningful enough for you to share it with others. I would love to connect with you sometime and find out how you came across my site, and if there are ways we could be of service or encouragement to one another in our different ministries.

    With Hope in Him,

    Hey, Mark –

    I just came here from Janice Garrison’s blog where I saw your comment. I live just up the road from you in Picayune, Miss. and have mutual blogging friends over on the coast, where our best friends live – in Long Beach (not members of the cofC).

    We’ll have to get acquainted. I’ve been blogging for just over 5 years & am also on FB, although it is disabled at the moment due to being hacked.

    Good blog! Keep up with it and you will find a very loving Christian fellowship and “church!”

    Cheers! And many blessings to you & your family in your work there in Long Beach.

    Dee Andrews

    P.S. I know of a family in your congregation through the mom’s mother-in-law, but don’t remember the lady’s name or her children. Will have to get back to you on that.

      If you have time for a cup of coffee sometime when you get this way give me a call (228-239-9296) and we’ll have a cup of coffee at the coffee shop on Jefferson Davis!

      By HIS Grace! Mark Hodges
