Bill and Carol visit...

It has been an interesting week! We were blessed to have my brother, Bill, and his wife, Carol come for a short visit. They arrived Tuesday and set up their air mattress in my living room. The equipment for inflating the mattress decided not to cooperate so after a fruitless trip to WalMart for another converter that did not seem to work, we ended up using the car battery to run the air pump. It was raining at the time, but not very hard. The mattress worked pretty well in the living room.
Bill is an amazing fellow. He is pretty low key - never seems to talk about himself much, but he is always interested in being helpful and in seeing others, especially members of his family do well. I have never heard him express an envious word. He is obviously very pleased with his children and very taken with his grandchildren. He has many talents. He can fix anything in the house and is good at building things. He is a man who loves the Lord and is more pleased to see evidence of spiritual growth in the members of his family than anything else.I am so blessed to have him for my big brother.
