My Life in the Sunshine (Autobiographical)

A Minister of the Gospel

Quote Posted on Updated on

If I was a sailor I’ve sail the seven seas

If I were a pirate I would capture booty

Or if I was a rich man I would live on a hill

 

But I am a minister of the gospel

A sanctified minister of the gospel

 

My gospel message is, salvation is free

Jesus gave his life for you and for me

When you make him Lord you shall be made free

 

I am a minister of the gospel

A sanctified minister of the gospel

 

It’s like nothing ever mattered until you’re filled with His grace

Liberty and awe when you seek His face

Complete and so fulfilling to me in this place

 

Being a minister of the gospel

A spirit filled minister of the gospel

 

Creation yearns and morns for a sign from above

A spirit filled people that move in His love

Nothing lost, nothing gained

Walking with tears in the rain

 

Loving all people it’s the Gospel

Pain goes away, fear cannot stay.

Ministering God’s word in the Gospel

 

Let go and let God, minister to your heart

Relax and let go and have faith in God.

Believe in God, it’s the gospel

You’ll find truth in God’s word, it’s the gospel

A minister of the gospel

My Father Gave Me This Trade

Beginnings of BFC

My family lived adjacent to the church when as 23 years old full time college student I found solace in attending church.  While living with my family and unemployed, by a series of events of supply, demand and availability I volunteered to perform church janitorial work. During the week, an even deeper solace was found when vacuuming the church with only the noise of the vac motor there was great peace.
There was still no income so I prayed for a job. Afterward, my attention focused on a newspaper.  In the classified section; Sears was advertising, “Help Wanted: Carpet Cleaners.” Calling the number (long story short) got the job, loved it, learned the trade and became a premier tech for the company as well as a company trainer and coach. By working in the church, God had reserved a blessing for me in the form of an income and a career. Unknowingly, by volunteering to clean the carpets in the church, I was later given a greater financial compensation than my college education would offer and something that my family did not grant: a trade. There is an Arabic Proverb that says,

“if you don’t teach your son a trade

you teach him to steal.”

My Heaven Father gave me this trade.

Some years later, Boswell Residential Carpet and Furniture Cleaning was formed after developing an impeccable reputation for reviving dull, soiled carpeted and upholstered surfaces.  Soon by becoming an expert in mixing solution with the matching cleaning issue that confronted me and estimating jobs at a glance, superior service with unmatched customer satisfaction was regularly offered.  These became inherent goals. In 2010, Boswell Residential Carpet and Furniture Cleaning was reorganized and BFC Furniture and Carpet Cleaning formed. The office is based in Madison County Alabama and clients in the Huntsville Alabama area  service are serviced. In memorial to our beginnings we offer free carpet cleaning to area churches (up to 750 square feet) when they call and schedule appointment.

My son:

You’ve been through much just to get here the wavy roller coaster ride through rough and smooth terrain. Now you are here at your destination and you have much to share.  The value of your experience is not to be discarded but placed together in a book for others to see. The broken pieces have value when put together as the weight of Gold, the great expectations and misfortunes, the joys and pains. You are a living witness that attests to the saying that favor is not fair.

the Witness,

Why has God chosen you to prosper with the array of others present? Because, you worked and listened while you focused your attention on Him and gathered, no not to any unnecessary attention that the frivolous parlay and flesh relish in;  in the sight of predators, grabbers; constantly competing with themselves, as if contending with an awesome God.

Yes, your perspectives are right and the path through the woods was worth it because of the gems and nuggets found by drudgery and failure after failure. You’ve found the light in a good season in your life you’ve worked out the misfortunes and traveled through them with grace and many times you were carried and placed in safety. I’ve always loved you, now I have the opportunity to bestow my love on you because you have been obedient to Me and it is your field that I seek to bless with an abundance of wealth. You shared your time and efforts, even your gifts and talents; now it is my turn to show out on your behalf.

 

MODERN CHRISTIAN CONCEPTS
Scene of the Nomadic Prophet

I need Thee.

I used to worry and lose my way, succumb to temptation and stay-bound to a yoke as Satan cracked his whip. People cut me with the lip and lashed-out with the tongue, like I wasn’t my mother’s son. Constantly battered by a barrage of unfriendly words saved sanctified and filled with His Holy Spirit yet hurt by the ones I love. Clinging to His presence like. it was my very life lost in His word estranged to the world; walking stepping careful not to offend in the humid heat or cold shower rains, I can never please man.
