First and foremost, Mike loved God. He desired to do God's will.
He also loved life, the outdoors, adventures, children, animals. Mike was a very structured, detailed man and I learned so much from him. I am so thankful for the 8 wonderful years of marriage that God allowed us to have.
The last years of our life together we had the opportunity to have chickens. We had such fun times just sitting and watching the chickens. I know I am not very good at writing and expressing myself with words but I have so many memories going through my head right now.
I came across the World Vision website and I realized this would be a wonderful tradition to start as a memory of Mike. I can donate chickens to provide nutrition and income to multiple families.
I have one more tradition I would like to start and that is a day of fasting and praying. Fasting from food, computer, television, facebook and cell phone. A day that I can focus 100% on God, worshiping Him, and praying for wisdom and guidance in my life.
I share these thoughts with you for two reasons. 1) I want you to hold me accountable. 2) I would love to know if any of you are interested in joining me.
To God be the Glory!
