Reflections and Rest

Tears flowed freely during yesterday as we celebrated the life of John Roberts Dobbs, but so did the laughter. The memorial captured, I think, the spirit of John Robert through the words spoken and the songs sung. The Spirit of God surrounded John and Maggy. John Robert touched and influenced so many in life. He will touch and influence even more in death. John and Maggy- along with their family- are making a final journey with John Robert to Ruleville, MS for the burial. Please continue to pray for them.

The Dodds are seeking a little retreat and rest for a few days. Thanks to the graciousness of friends we are going to be able to enjoy an Alabama country home with some of the best fishing in the state. I am so excited. For some reason Terri does not quite share my enthusiasm!

May God bless your Memorial Weekend holiday.

    He is obviously a beloved son, in whom you were well pleased…as is his other Father.

    Thank you for being such a good friend to John and Maggy. They deserve good people like you.

    I appreciate your words at the funeral, and it was good to see you again (it’s been a WHILE). Perhaps we can do so more often, but I pray not under the same circumstances!

    God Bless John and Maggy!

    Danny –

    I hope you and your family will have a blessed week of rest and relaxation. (And lots of fresh fish to eat!)

    Thanks for everything you have been doing for John & Maggy and their family. For being there for them when some of the rest of us couldn’t be.

    Cheers & Blessings to you all today!

    Thanks for the well-wishes everyone.

    James, it was good seeing you again too. I am glad your work is going well. And it would be nice to get together more often for sure.
