I Was A Surprise

I was born on Thursday November 11, 1937 in the second house from the corner of Camden and Lexington in Jackson, TN.

To show you how different the world was in those days my ten year old sister, not even knowing that mother was expecting a baby, came home from school, took one look at me and said to mother, “What’s that?”   Mom said that I was her baby brother; with that my sister asked where I had come from and mother responded that Dr. Brown had brought me. She then told mother to call Dr. Brown and tell him to come and get me that we didn’t need a baby.

So much for a great welcome. They didn’t send me back and I had the joy of growing up in a wonderful Christian home with three older sisters and two great parents.  God has sure been good to a family surprise. I was not only loved but I was introduced to the Lord of Lords, His love. and the love of a family that belonged to Him.
