Sunshine In My Soul

Two of my folks' best friends were Laura and Akhil Jhaveri. Mom and Dad came to know the Jhaveris through their congregation in St. Louis. One Thanksgiving, my folks and I spent the morning at a homeless shelter with Akhil and Laura, serving dinner. As the years passed, Mom and Dad were always invited to spend Thanksgiving with Laura and Akhil and when in St. Louis, I would tag along for a wonderful meal and gracious fellowship. Two years ago, the Jhaveris moved to Dallas along with their three lovely daughters. Today, I received an e-mail from Laura about Jordan, their eight year old. It seems the lessons these Christian parents have taught their children are already bearing fruit. Jordan and her friends were featured in a segment by the CBS affiliate in Dallas doing the type of good deeds that should be the trademark of Christians. Laura also is interviewed in this clip. I wish Dad could have seen this; he loved Laura, Akhil, and their girls!

God bless,
Luke 18:1
