Tough love

Lonnie got a birthday package in the mail today from his mother. Inside, carefully wrapped was one of his father's very worn bibles. We flipped through finding his writing and notes, highlighted verses and thoughts all over the pages. This note was one of my favorites. This is Lonnie's first birthday without being able to talk to his dad, but i'm sure he would have encouraged him with these exact words. Love sometimes must be tough! We miss you Mike.
