It's National Good Brother Day

Have you noticed in recent years we have a national day for just about everything?

Today is April 25, 2017. If you search you'll see it's National Crayola Day

It's Freedom Day in Portugal. Okay, that's a legit holiday. The closest I've gotten to Portugal is looking at Scott's pictures from his trip.


You'll also discover it's National DNA Day, East Meets West Day, Hairstylists Appreciation Day, National Telephone Day, National Plummer's Day and many more.

What you may not discover in your research on April 25, is my brother, Chris Lutz was born on this day. He's been a great brother over the years. I've watched him grow into a good husband and father. Chris is a good example of a godly father. Maybe because we grew up with a great example with our dad.

Acts 10:2 NIV "He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly."

My dad and brother are both devout and God-fearing and have prayed for our families regularly. I'm truly blessed to be part of their family.

Because most of these other holidays don't mean much to me, I'm going to be corny and proclaim it National Good Brother Day.


This is Chris with his wife Carol when we vacationed with them in Maine this fall.


And here's a picture of Dad with the family.



And because I have sons, I decided to throw in a picture of them with Tim as we celebrate National Good Brother Day.


If you have a brother, I encourage you to reach out to him today.

Happy National Good Brother Day!

My New Back Porch

I'm getting used to living in South Carolina, and I wanted to share my back porch with you. In the morning I see the sun rise over the lake. During the day ducks, geese, and herons land along the shore by my yard.






So far the only boats I've seen are a little toy speed boat, and my kayak and canoe. We've all enjoyed our boats on the water, but I think Brooke had the most fun. I never dreamed I'd actually live on the coast and in particular on a lake. God has delighted me beyond measure.









Genesis 1:31: "God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day."





Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great week and take delight in the Lord.

Psalm 37:4 NIV "Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart."
