    • Took Shepherd Cycling to V.A. Cemetery to visit the grave of Army staff SGT Darrell Ray Griffin Jr who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our nations frredom.  He was a “bronze star with valor” and “purple heart” recipient.  He was killed by a snipers bullet on March 21, 2007.  His father, Shepherd Church member,  tells the brave story about his son in the book “Last Journey.” I pray we are all mindful and thankful for all the people who serve in the armed forces.  Saying “Thank you” doesn’t seem enough.  Living everyday being mindful of people like Darrell Ray Griffin Jr., paying respect and caring for our nation is a great way to express ones gratitude.  Thank you also to all the scouts who place flags on the grave markers today.  We are all indebted.  #usa #america #usarmy #memorialdayweekend #memorialday #flagrespect @quickeasyreads @flagrespect #gratefull #blessing #freedom #ultimatesacrifice

    • Last weekend, I preached for my brother @dbirdrutherford at his church @crosscity_fresno for Mother’s Day.  We had great crowds and such a wonderful spirit in that church.  If you are in the Fresno area go check out Cross City Church on nees ave.  Mom and dad were both doing well and thank you to @drkojoglanian for preaching here @shepherdchurch.  I am excited to be back in the pulpit here at Shepherd Church this weekend as we continue our series on the “Power of One.” #preaching #life #churchlife #preacher #mothersday #crosscity #cross #crosscitychurch #shepherdchurch #thepowerofone
    • Happy Mother’s Day to my wonderful mother, Pattie.  She raised 5 of the craziest kids on the planet, plus putting up with dad all these years .  She is 87 years young and still leads a life group in her church each week, plus attends two church services each weekend.  She has listened to more sermons than anyone and probably could be a professor of Bible with her knowledge of the word.  I want to pray and send a blessing to all of the mothers in this world.  None of us would be here without you!!!!! Also my love goes out to my beautiful wife, daughter and mother-in-law for also being the best of the best.  You four mean the world to me and to all of your children.  But what the world really needs are more grand babies!!!!!!!! Thank you Mom for leading and mentoring us in the things of God.  #mothersday #mothers #motherhood #mom #daytogivethanks

A Mother’s Faith

When my grandmother met my grandfather, he was a lawyer for the United States government, working in Tulsa, Oklahoma. When they met and fell in love, he did what every respectable young man in that day would do: he took her home to meet his mother.
