“A friend loveth at all times …” Pro. 17:17

One of the blessings of this time of transition in my life has been the opportunity to work with Bro. Skinner on a daily basis.  Bro. Skinner has been a blessing, an encouragement and has challenged me in my walk with God.  Thursday night he invited several of us over to watch the National Championship game between Alabama and Texas.  Even though two of my sons (and my ex-future son-in-law) all turned traitor and pulled for Bama, Bro. Skinner pulled for Texas with me.  Even when things got bad and I crawled under my Juniper tree, he was there to soothe my wounds (the wounds of a friend) and encourage me.  Bro. Skinner –  I love you man.  You are a FRIEND!  I only wish everyone had a friend like you.
