3. A call to remember (vv. 12-13).


I am so thankful for all that the Lord has done in and through my life in the past 62 years since I trusted Him as my Lord and Savior. It is hard to begin to describe all that He has done. I am sure that I have disappointed Him many times but He has never disappointed me. He has given me a wonderful wife to share this time with and a joyful life of ministry with Word of Life.
