He has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.

I guess all of us of a certain age have a "Billy Graham" story to tell.

I was first aware of him when he was a young preacher conducting evangelistic meetings in Detroit, Michigan in the late 40s and early 50s.  I was totally mesmerized by the crowds, the tent, the music and the evangelist.  And I'm sure I "went forward" at the close of the services at least 10 times during those early years!  But God ...

"The myths need to be discarded.  We need to hold to what Scripture actually does tell us and not presume beyond that," Jim explains.

With Christmas just around the corner, we wanted to make ...

"Day After" greeting cards!

We celebrate the "day before"--a lot of "eves" come to mind!
Greeting CardsBut the "day after?"  Not so much.

The day after a birthday.
The day after an anniversary.
The day after the birth of a child.
The day after you get the promotion.
The day after you've had surgery.
The day after vacation.

See what I mean?

Yesterday I had the best "day of" ever--celebrating 25 years at Ambassador.  It's a milestone, no question.  And a bit of a shock knowing I have colleagues who weren't born on my first "day of ...
