Milton, here:
Today was a full one. We had lunch and dinner with dear friends. Kristy has improved in many ways through the week though she is weak and struggles with short term memory. God has helped us and we are very grateful to all our friends and loved ones who continue to pray. May God bless each of you.

We received a card signed by 21 members of Sunday School class in a Baptist Church in Marian County, Ala. We couldn't believe such love from folks we have never met. But that is the family of God in action. Cards come from all over written by unknown dear ones who reach out in love.

Thanks to all who have sent cards, emails, letters, and entered comments on the blog. You are the best.
By the way, did you know we have a cow that will moo in our kitchen? Not the impala. They don't moo. I don't know what they do.

Jeannie and I are continuing to pray for you two and the girls. We wished we lived closer to offer more help. If you need anything let us know. I remember like it was yesterday when you two stopped by the church in Tampa after council last year and we prayed for one another in the sanctuary. That was a special moment. Thanks.

Milton, your Mother and I are so glad to know Kristy is feeling better. PTL!

In reference to the Impala I couldn't resist passing this info along. ;-)

Impala's are a noisy animal, grunting frequently during the day. Alarm call is a loud, high-pitched snort. During the rut, territorial males are extremely vocal, uttering an array of noises from grunts to a roar. This roar has frightened the wits out of more than a few people, as it is often mistaken for the roar of a lion. This roar is used by the territorial male to advertise his status and to prevent females from leaving the breeding herd. This roar sounds like a mixture of a cough and a belch, accomplished with the neck stretched forward and the head tipped upwards.

We love you both and continue to hold you in our thoughts and prayers.

Dad, how do you know so much about impalas? I don't recall seeing any impalas in Alabama, and the only one I have seen in Florida is hanging on our wall in the kitchen not saying very much.

Hey Milton and Kristy...
I'm Cathy in Tennesse, and I just absolutely LOVE your whimsy!!!
You mentioned the cow that makes a mooing sound---well, I have a kitchen with many, many cows (as I decorate my kitchen in holstein cows!)...soooo cute! I have a soap dispenser that can moo, plus many others'. This past Christmas my kitchen placemats were adorned with cows, beneath them was this ... "I HERD the bells on Christmas Day" ~ Cute, or what?
Y'all are such a blessing to me! I feel that I have "morning coffee" with y'all each morning...I can hardly wait to see what's new daily! Be blessed today-you're in my prayers, and I love you so much! In Him, Cathy

Kristy and Milton, last Sunday at prayer meeting before service we post all the prayer needs on the screen for all to see. Kristy your name has been on the list ever since Rebecca asked us to remember you. As I was praying I became aware of my Pastor, Phil Stephens calling your name out and asking the Lord for His devine healing power to manifest in your body. Know that Southside A/G in Lakeland is holding you both up in prayer.
God Bless,

Oh, I just love you two guys so much! Do you have any idea what your "sharing" does for people? I don't think you could possibly know! God takes a seemingly devestating situation and uses it to minister so many throughout the world! How the non-christian person can make it through any type of devestation and turmoil is far beyond comprehension. The family of God surrounds one another with love and prayers, in the time of need and crisis. You are truly "my family" through Christ!....FATHER, AT THIS VERY MOMENT, IN THE SWEET NAME OF JESUS, I DECLARE PEACE AND VICTORY AND HEALING! MAY THE WARMTH OF YOUR SWEET HOLY SPIRIT ENGULF MILTON AND KRISTY..JUST LOVE ON THEM AND ALLOW THEM TO FEEL THE LOVE OF ALL THOSE PRAYING AND STANDING WITH THEM TODAY! PRAISE YOUR SWEET, HOLY NAME!

Your family has been on my heart and in my prayers during this long journey. May you experience a special blessing this Easter as you celebrate our risen Savior!

I just wanted to share with you something special about the house that you built and lived in while you pastored in Bartow,the one on George Street. I'm sure that you can remember some wonderful times there. My brother Allen was the electrictian.

His daughter now owns the home with her three children and husband. She was very surprised to see an old buisness card in the electric panel box from her dad. He has been gone since 1987. They love the house as much as I'm sure you did.

God bless you as we celebrate our Risen Savior this Easter.

Hello Kristy,
I am a fellow AWSA writer-friend. My prayers go up for you often and your blog is a constant encouragement to me. I told my precious Rob, my pastor-husband of 35 years, about you and we pray together. When I'm growly, I tell him I'd better go read your blog to get me back on track in the "loving my spouse" area.
Tee Hee. What an encouragement you've been!

Love, Sharon Hoffman
