The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
 The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
 The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.”
Numbers 6:24-26

Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways.
For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.”
Psalm 128:1-4

 

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. Happy birthday, Mr. L! May the Lord continue to richly bless you and your family. You have raised Rachel to be a vibrant witness for Jesus! I truly appreciate her friendship.

  2. “…but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”

    I remember coming to the shop in Odessa and you and a son or two were ironing. That was my first impression of you–servant leader.

    Joseph remembers you as a gentle man from the two meetings that he had with you.

    Your family has been a blessing to us–an example to try and imitate with God’s help.

    I agree with Sarah’s comment–the fruit of your labor in Rachel is sweet–she is a wonderful encourager in the LORD.

    Love,
    Rebekah for The Perkins Family

  3. “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-3

    Happy Birthday, Dad! I am recalling the Lord’s mercy on this very special day as I remember how HE delivered you from death a few years ago! I’m filled with SO much gratitude to the LORD! How blessed we are that you are still here leading, serving and unconditionally loving us all. Thank you and HAPPY, HAPPY Birthday, DAD!
