I went home to Iowa this week and got to see my whole family. My reason for going was for my oldest brother's ordination as a minister. I was so proud of him. I got all choked up when I saw him on the altar with the other candidates for ordination. My mother always thought my brother would make a wonderful minister. She died more than 18 years ago - but I could feel her watching over the ceremony and beaming with pride! I know I was. By the way, Mom was right. :D
My brother, the Reverend Bradley Jackson and family
So if you're ever in Oelwein, Iowa - please go visit his church and say hello. Brad and his family have the most wonderful faith in God. I've never seen miracles happen for people the way I see them happen for them. They are truly blessed.
