I guess the cat's out of the bag, that it is my birthday today. And a BIG Surprise for my birthday!
What a wonderful gift from the Lord to have my brother Tony write me such a play. Tony and I have traded places being the "black sheep of the family" for years, Tony for all the trouble he's gotten into, me for being who I am and loving Him (we come from a secular family). I've tried again and again to reach out, and, though this was a COMPLETE surprise, I did sense the Lord working in Tony's life.
Guess who the little scoundrel was in this caper? That's right, my adoptive son Jim Jr (Carl). He (I found out later) got a disk from Tony that afternoon after school, then posted it after I'd gone to bed. This morning, in what was probably really bad acting (not that this lunkhead noticed) he INSISTED that I go on line before work. Well, I did, and sure enough, I ended up checking out PuppetResources and wha-la!
You wouldn't believe the tears. That particular passage from Acts has always been a cornerstone of my Faith, and to find that it meant so much to my little brother (we're seperated in years by nearly 20) just...well words cannot say!
Sorry to yammer on! You are all such wonderful friends to put up with it!
Did you read his puppet play in our "Puppet Play" section? Did you see his picture? Do you see the family resemblance? Do you see the years of sin on his face? Do you see the love of Jesus in his eyes?
God Bless my brother Tony!
And God Bless you all!
