My Brother Sam

What can I say except that he’s a close friend and I’ve known him for over 20 years.  We first met doing volunteer work at SEHERR in Poplar Bluff, MO.  I have watched him over the years find his strength through God.  He has been an inspiration to me for longer than he knows.  But I don’t tell him that lest he be less humble.  <LOL>  We had lost touch over the years but reconnected when I moved to St. Louis, MO.  He recently became a Friar with the Order of St. Francis.  I’ve watched his life change with a deeper walk with God.  I can say that I’ve never seen him as happy as he is now.  There is something so very special about that.  I pray that God will continue his blessing and good life in Sam.
