More Than Just A Hobby

| December/January 1998

This world is not a perfect place. We all have our share of difficulties at times. During the difficult times it's nice to have a hobby or interest that can divert your attention away from problems, spark your interest, provide you with a get-away, fill you with enough hope to get you on your feet again and fire up your spirit enough for you to want to carry on.

Men and women of Stem gas Publishing Company, you have helped provide all of the above and more for me and countless others. I am truly grateful for all of your efforts and thank you with all my heart.

Since my first subscription, I've met more of the finest people anyone could ever hope to meet in one lifetime. I haven't met a bad one yet. People can and do make a difference in our lives. Some touch our hearts in special ways too hard to put down in words. I thank our Lord, most especially, for providing all the wonderful people who have slipped into my life and helped to ease the pain, lighten the burden and fill my heart with happiness and joy. With all of you, even the worst and most painful times have turned out for the best. Because of your thoughtfulness, care and generosity but most of all your prayers, the wife is alive, in good heath and will walk again. God bless each and every one of you.

I am alive today, a cancer survivor. I love God and his son Jesus and I continue to carry on living, with hope, because of everyone I've met so far, all those I've yet to meet, the Stem gas Publishing Company and my hobby, collecting garden tractors. Thank you.
