I am a Church of God pastor, Cleveland TN, living in central Florida. My wife and I have been here about five years. We have twin daughters and three wonderful grandchildren. Our house is quite noisy at times, because there’s a West Highland White Terrier and very happy gray cockatiel who currently act like they own the place. Come to think of it, they do get their way quite often.
My goal is to make heaven my home one day; Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. Until that day, however, the Lord, my family and I are on a wonderful journey together. God never promised smooth sailing, but He did promise to be with us through life’s circumstances. What a friend we have in Jesus; He’s the Rock we lean on.
After being raised in church all my life, I finally met the man Christ Jesus at an old non-denominational church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on Easter Sunday, 1977. One thing I can truly say is this: the Lord is faithful. I have been blessed to serve God since then with a heartfelt desire to please Him in every area of my life. Understand, that has not always happened.
Now, about the name of the blog, From Preacherpen’s Desk. I have been collecting and using pens for a lot of years. If memory serves correctly, I first started collecting them while working at the Air Force hospital, Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida. Fountain pens are, by far, my favorite writing devices; there’s lots of them in my collection. Writing with a finely crafted pen is a pleasurable experience for me, and if you don’t already, you might want to give a fountain pen another chance. I really enjoy writing, so, instead of taking my fountain pens to paper, I use the keyboard to put my thoughts on electronic pages.
This is my first blog, and, obviously, there’s quite a lot to learn. No doubt, the blog will change over time, and will surely improve. Thanks for stopping by. Come again, and bring someone with you. Pastor Ron Parish
