Yes it was. I am 80s childs other half. Very proud of my wife and our Boys. We own and operate a commodities firm. We provide commodities in the form of grains, flours, dairy products and many other beneficial commodities to many different countries. I am the middle son of a wonderful Baptist Preacher who happens to be married to my mother who is a wonderful woman. A bit mis understood and high strung but a good woman. My wife is a beautiful, loyal, talented and smart woman who loves our family and is faithful to our beliefs. The fact that she is a bit hard headed came in handy while we were building our international business. My family is my life and when we are successful, we are successful together. When we fail, we fail together. My greatest gift in life was and is my Family. Life is not perfect but it would not be life if it was. Our Faith in Jesus guides us each day. We are followers of Jesus not religion. None of us are right all the time and there are times I am certain we get it wrong but we keep trying and hope that we can be an example to our Boys that they will grow up to be good Men in a world full of questionable characters. Debate is always healthy as long as each debater respects his or her adversary and their God given right to their own opinion. We are only as free as we let ourselves be. Most are chained by intellect that will not allow themselves to believe or have faith in a greater power. Some of us that believe are chained by a distorted man made view of God which is highly in accurate because the men who sanctioned these views desired to retain power over the population. In my view many Christians are as blind or mis led as those who choose not to believe. Life is a gift from God. The way in which we receive this gift is up to us. Be warned, being a christian by no means makes us passivist as i am sure some of you have realized by talking to my wife is that we bite back. Any and all respectful, decent and compassionate debate will be welcomed and treated as such;likwise, Idiots will be dealt with in an entirely different manner. God Bless and Baseball and Agriculture talk is always welcome.
