My Pastor died yesterday morning. He was only 58 years old!! He was in great shape.  He was a runner.  He preached a wonderful message Sunday. I am just heartbroken, for his family, for myself and my family, for my church family. He was instrumental in shaping the relationship I have with God.  He was REAL!! He was not a T.V. type preacher or a boring, put you to sleep minister, or a holier than thou priest. He was a great man, an awesome speaker who loved God, his wife, his children, & his church, & his friends. He adored his dogs and loved to ride his Harley. He was an author, a teacher and a Renegade for God!  He often said that if Jesus came back today, He’d ride a Harley instead of a donkey!! David had a great sense of humor and rumor had it, that he didn’t think he’d done his job on Sunday unless he’d made us laugh at least once!!

I feel pretty lost right now. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve responded, “Fine.” to recent questions inquiring as to how I am. “FINE!” Feelings In Need of Expression and not having the words to express my feelings.

When asked, “How are you?” Dave would want us to say, “Still in one PEACE.”. Sorry, Pastor Dave, my heart is in several pieces right now. Yet, because of your teaching, my faith is still strong!!! I know there’s a plan. I don’t know what it is, but there has to be a plan. God Bless you, your beautiful family and all of us. I trust that you’re cruising streets of gold on a Harley and eating meat, cause you said there better be bacon in Heaven. We’ll be fine.
