John Weller has died

Every life tells a story....almost whether people like it or not.

Through a Christian's eyes John represented the lavish grace and love shown towards his family, that the Father has towards us. The same absurd nuttiness of throwing everything in behind his family.

Amidst the F words.

Amidst the atheism.

Amidst his total lack of patience with people who only half live their lives.And he represented the other F word.....but totally without any religiosity....Faith.

Faith just to go for things. To risk and sometimes hit lucky.

And certainly with Paul,his son,the singer, he hit gold. But not every Dad is there to push and shove and make things happen .

You can hear his story here:

And you can read my brief involvement with them all here.

My love and respect goes out to the family.

Thank you for the comment you left me today! I came home, from running around like mad, preparing for the wedding...sat down with a sigh and there you were! With words that were full of grace, glory, and blessing.

Yes, heaven leaks its glory onto wedding celebrations. Chris, I will be thinking of your words this Friday, I promise!

Thanks again.
