I was born in a small town in Southeast Arkansas in 1933. We moved north in the early 50's to a small suburb, south west of Chicago. I went into the army in 1954, served some time in Germany, I was discharged in 1956. Looking back over my life, I feel that GOD has been drawing me, as far back as I can remember, everything I would attempt to do that may separate me from GOD, I would failed at it. For I always loved reading the bible and going to church every week. Made no difference where I would be, this I believe was GOD drawing me. As we read in John, 6:44. As early as 1955 I started making and keeping notes from the Bible, I spent the last 10 or 11 years checking them out and putting them in a book. Back in the days when a high school diploma was like a college degree today. I did finished high school and went onto a vocational trade school where I receive my A&P aircraft mechanic license, I work for a major Air Line 35 years before retiring in 2000.
