Celebrating A Servant!

Today is our oldest son's birthday.... Austin is seventeen! Time has flown by....

As I write this, Austin is not here. My brother-in-Christ is out being God's servant at the little store here in the highly secure gated community. He is being the hands, feet, ears, eyes, and mouth of the Father he loves and adores. It is one of the ways he worships. He takes being a lifestyle missionary seriously as well as being in vocational ministry.

It is has been such an incredible blessing to watch how God has used Austin and continues to use him to show others His love and kindness. Austin is a generous young man. He has already adopted one child through Compassion International.

I could go on and on.... (no, I'm not the slightest bias am I?)

Today.... this moment... I am celebrating a servant....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUSTIN!

How can you serve others, today...... this moment?

As always, you were just prayed for....

God is moving.... are you?


Watch for the next edition of Serve! ezine... The Lawn Pastor!

Happy Birthday Austin...

Paul reminded Timothy to not let people despise his youth. I would always challenge you to heed Paul's words of wisdom...Keep serving...Keep living out your faith...Keep demonstrating a servant lifestyle and people will be drawn to Christ--not always by what you say, but by what you do!

Camey and the Lawn Pastor...keep pointing your young man in God's direction and then watch in amazement what God does through him and with him...it's a delicate balance, of holding on very loosely with a person called to be God's servant...

Be proud of him...celebrate where God leads...rejoice in lives changed through his faithfulness!
