“ABOVE ALL ELSE!” (Proverbs 4:23)
It was forty years ago today that I was joined in holy matrimony to Cynthia Lynn Hill…We were blissfully, blisteringly, blusteringly and very much bless-fully enjoined together for twenty-eight years. Many good and great things came of and about, as a direct result of our union, but the greatest and certainly the most satisfying and endearing, has to be the three children, Robert Lyn, aka. Boomer, then later on, just Rob Bob, (he didn’t much prefer Boomer, probably because it was also the name of our boxer) Austin Lee, aka. Bubba, (which he said we could call him his whole life, if you are family or really close to him) Noele Helene, aka. Missy Muffy Lou, (and too many other nicknames to list, all quite cute and endearing) The seven grandchildren, so far, Jordan, aka. Lil Bub; Tyler, aka Ty-Bo-Bub; Dylan, aka. Final Bub, (NOT); Cannyon, aka. doesn’t need a nickname, as her real name is too cool; Eli, aka. Bubba Don, (resembles his papa Don); Banning, aka. Bubbies, (just one of numerous nicknames); and finally, Emily Grace, who also has many nicknames, but I call her Lady Bub! I am blessed beyond measure!
As I remember this day, the one thing that comes to my mind, in the form of a question, as being most important, over and above everything else is: Are you guarding your heart, and what is the present condition of your heart? I ask myself this question, quite often, and I ask it of everyone now, whether you be in my immediate family, extended family, friends, neighbors, associates and everyone else. The last thing Cynthia said to me and asked me, before she went to be with The LORD, was: “I know that my heart is completely free of all angst, worry, bitterness, resentment, for I have released and forgiven all hurts, insults and wounds, and I am now ready to meet The LORD!” And then she asked me if we were good and if I my heart was free? Thank The LORD, my heart is completely free, because of His mercy, grace and loving kindness.
Remember, and please take this to heart:
“There isn’t anything more important, in this life, than to make sure that your heart is free of all debris; because, everything else, in your life, is always going to be affected by the condition of your heart!” (Proverbs 4:23 PDCP)
“Above all else, keep your heart free of debris, flush the flesh and stay refreshed!” Blessings…
