This past weekend Karen and I went to visit our oldest daughter Tiffany and her beautiful family. Her husband Ben and their son Benjamin, our precious grandson, are always such a blessing with whom to spend time. Sunday we went to church and even had the chance to worship with a friend formerly from here now living in St. Petersburg. It is something I heard in church that I must share with you this morning.
Dr. Stephen Rummage, the senior pastor of Bell Shoals Baptist Church in Brandon, FL, is a fine man of God who preaches the Word unashamedly and unapologetically. He was preaching about our being adopted into the family of God and he told the story of a young lady who was speaking with her mother about her child’s dark hair. She could not figure out how their child got dark hair since she and her husband both had light hair. Her mother said, “Well dear, your father has dark hair.” The daughter replied, “Yeah but Mom, I’m adopted.” The mother shyly replied, “Yeah I know, I keep forgetting.”
