A Portrait of the Christian as a Middle Aged Man

Youth is the period in which a man can be hopeless. The end of every episode is the end of the world. But the power of hoping through everything, the knowledge that the soul survives its adventures, that great inspiration comes to the middle-aged.

-G. K. Chesterton

Steve, I must confess, I have not read your webpage since you changed the format, etc. (although I did see the Williamsburg pictures). Yesterday, I happen to go to your website and I read your blogs. I want to tell you what joy I experienced in reading them. Not just because of the truth of what you wrote and the meditations they gave me here at work and at home, but the joy of knowing that they were written by our son. Flesh and blood did not reveal these things to you and the joy of knowing that your child sees these things is so very precious. Someday your children will take the time to write such things and you will know what it means to see them understand the things of God. Things no man can teach you. Not knowing what lies ahead for all of us in this life, I do know that you have Christ, and that is all you need. Mom
