Do you ever reflect on memories of the first person or people that shared the love of Christ with you? Tonight I went to pay respects to this great woman in Christ who went to her eternal home this week. When I was a little boy I grew up across the street and became very good friends her son Rick. I spent many days of my childhood at their house, a house that was always warm and welcoming. I truly believe that some of the first seeds of faith were planted in my heart by Mrs Greathouse and her family. The Lord truly blessed me to know this great woman of God and her family. I am eternally grateful.
