"The Cross is the blazing fire at which the flame of our love is kindled, but we have to get near enough for its sparks to fall on us."
Today is Trey's 40th birthday when I read this I couldn't help but think of him. He, through the grace and sustenance of our Risen Lord, continues to draw so close to the Cross of Christ that he is showered with the sparks of His unquenchable fire.
With this fire, he loves us out loud and pours himself out before his Lord each day as he humbly seeks to serve Him well in the Call he has been given.
"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from becoming polluted by the world."
Trey, we are so thankful for you, your life, and your commitment to be used by the Lord in His redemptive work.
And it doesn't hurt that you're smokin' hot, too.
We love you!
