Just got back from Atlanta. Hope your headache is gone. Did you spend time with your family today? The sermon was excellent by Dr. Stanley. Talked about this nation which has drifted from God. Did you make it to church today? Whole lotta questions, huh? Anyways, hoping hat you had a very good 4th of July. Going to bed now. Will e-mail you when I get up in the morning. Have a good nights rest. Thinking of you, Andy

Call me again as soon as possible. Pat said she has to go to Wal Mart this morning to pick up some medicine so she told me to come to her house and she would take me to Pep Boys so I won't have to make two trips.

Angie, you have my word that I won't say anything about this or anything else we talked about. I know by the time you read this you will have already worked today. I know you are tired so take a nap and get some rest. I'll be in touch. I'm suppose to go over to Lillian's house and watch the New Jersey rally that Dr. Stanley had on tape with Uncle John and Lonnie's cousin from Germany. Will try to talk with you this evening before I go but if for some reason I'm late getting back I'll e-mail you instead. Have a good evening. I'll continue to pray for you and your family. Thanks for having me over. I'm proud of us but not suprised that we are being good when we get together. It's the only way to keep our relationship, friendship going. We're smart enough to realize that this time. Thinking of you, Andy

     Andy, How was your day? E mail me.

Wed, Jul 7, 1999, 6:38pm
H Angie. I just got home. Lillian wanted me to go to Warren tonight for the new testament study that Brett Legg is having for the next 6 weeks. I don't have any clean clothes so I won't make it. It is 6:35 pm. Well, it will be ok since Lillian is going with her friend from the gym. I worked 10 hours today. Steve is off this week. So is Charlie (back), Debbie came in at 7:00 this morning and left at 1:00 this afternoon. They don't expect Charlie tomorrow so I have to go in and work from 9:00 to 6:00. I don't mind since I could use the money right now. What's going on with you? Lillian is having dinner at her house tonight. We are invited and leaving here about 7:45. Uncle John is leaving tomorrow to back to Jersey and Father Dave is leaving for Germany. I guess that's what this dinner is all about. Benny just called over there and he said that it might not get started until after 9:00 so I'll be late getting home tonight. I'll miss talking to you. I would try to call you now but thought you might be taking a nap so I don't want to wake you. You can leave me a message and when I get home I'll answer all of your questions if you have any. Angie, it's good to know we're friends. I care about you always and continually miss you. Have a good evening! And a great day tomorrow! You can count on my prayers for you, your mom, your aunt, and the rest of your family. As always, Andy

Andy, Too bad you have to work tomorrow. Did you have good time tonight?How did Lillian like Bret's class? I guess you made a wise decision about that job. (Especially if you felt that God led you in that direction). Have a great day tomorrow. I'll talk to you soon. Angie

Had a good night. Didn't get home until about 1130. Let me know if you want to get together tomorrow. Call me at work if you want to. Good to talk with you this evening. You're always the best. I gotta go pray now. Don't forget to call me. Have a great day tomorrow

Thu, Jul 8, 1999, 7:40pm
I'm here at home now. I've been here for about 15 minutes. I had already written you but I accidently hit the wrong button and wiped the message off so I'll start over again. I don't know what to think. I feel you are upset with me and I'm sorry about this. I care about you and would do anything for you but I thought we had an understanding and you kind of knew that I wasn't going to bid. I have prayed about it and I just strongly felt God was telling me not to bid. I want to please you but my first responsibility is to do what I feel God is telling me to do. If you feel that I've let you down, I'm sorry about that. I have to obey God. After we talked, I was in awe about all of this. I went over to the board and wrote down the bid number, then returned to the window and thought about it. As I started looking for the bid card it's as if God said "Are you going to do what I siad or are you going to bid on that job". I know you will probably say that is a bunch of s___ but that's what my heart was telling me. Now I don't know whether you want to remain friends or if you are going to just not speak for a while to me. I hope that you will think this through and give me a call this evening. I had planned on coming over. I'll just sit here until I hear from you. As Always, Andy

Subject: I'm Sorry
Andy, I guess I overreacted today when you told me you were definitely not going to bid on the job. It didn't seem that important until the time was about to run out. I know that you have been praying about it but I just didn't want you to miss out on something you might end up regreting later.I know you probably know what is best for you in the long run.I'm glad we're friends. See ya, Angie

Subject: Re: I'm Sorry
I may have done alot of things to you before that were wrong and I want to apologize for them. I'm not perfect and I do make mistakes. But I do know that with God in my life and yours all things are possible. Please understand it is never my intent to hurt you in any way now that Christ indwells me. And I know you feel the same way. You are cherished by me and I will never ever forget you and what you really mean to me. I know that we need some time with our friendship. Listening to that tape you gave me started me to thinking about how to listen. I don't understand you sometimes and I know you think sometimes that I am just plain dumb But I want to know how you think, why you think the way you think, how you feel and how to improve our communciation without defending myself.. And I want you to do the same too.   I'm always butting it. Sometimes we both get caught up in trying to defend ourselves that we are always trying to win. Win what? I don't understand it sometimes and want to learn how to listen even if we don't agree. Always trying to tear each other down. I know that I fall short of what God wants me to learn from it. I appreciate the tape and will continue to listen to it. I've taken some notes on it but need to examine myself and ask God to help me to learn how to listen. Or how to alof of things. I need Him in my life and I know you will agree with me here. Please don't be discouraged about tonight. We can grow if we will respond in the right manner and that is to be forgiving toward each other and pray for one another and REMAIN close friends. I hope you will have a good day tomorrow. If there is anyway I can see you tomorrow please let me know. I have the kids but will drop them off at 8:30 pm. Have a good nights rest, Angie. Thinking of you, Andy

I'll miss you when I'm gone. I will call you but don't know what evening it will be. Thanks for having me over tonight. Sorry that I couldn't keep my hands off you. I didn't mean any harm. We both know our limits. And the punishment that will happen if we do something stupid. It was nice to be with you. I didn't want it to end but know Saturday is here. WORK. I know I'll be tired driving to Myrtle Beach. Thanks for the tapes Angie. And please know that you will always be in my prayers and thoughts. Always and forever, Andy PS Sorry this message is so short. Have to fold some clothes and get ready for bed. Four will be here before I know it.

Sun, Jul 18, 1999, 12:33am
We just got back from the beach. I know it's late. I'm dead tired. I'll try to reach you tomorrow. Love ya, Andy

Sun, Jul 18, 1999, 2:12pm
   Hi Andy, Wow you did get back late lastnight. Hope you had a good time. I'll be home for the next couple of hours if you want to call. I'll probably be watching tv so I won't know it if you try to write me. Have a good day.

Sun, Jul 18, 1999, 5:22pm
Hi Angie!! Howdy! I've been out of it most of the afternoon. There was no room on the bed last night so I slept on that red sofa in my bedroom. It's not very comfortable to sleep on. Just feel whipped. Sorry I didn't reply when you sent the message to me. Hope your day is good. Just got back from the store. I still have the groceries in the trunk. It is raining outside so I'll wait to see if it slows down. Feel a little let down today. Back to work tomorrow. Need to get my attitude on right before I go to bed tonight. I know only God can help me with that. I'll probably lie back down again in a while. If you get home and it's not too late for you, call me so we can talk a bit. May peace and love be with you today, Angie. As Always, Andy

Andy, I know it's hard to think about going back to work after a week off but I just pray that tomorrow you'll have a new 'tude. One comfort that you have over some of the others is Jesus is always right by your side. I'm going to try to stay in communion with HIM throughout my day. I'll pray that you do the same. HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Angie, Thanks for being such an encouragement. I know sometimes we are in so much sin by the way we talk and act but we both know it's not keeping of who we are in Christ. I think if there is to be healing in our relationship (friendship) we have to act as if Jesus were right here among us which He is. I know I'm very guilty of all this coarse joking which is fun for us but if we want Jesus to be Lord of our lives and heal us of many imperfections in which we have we have to trust and obey Him. What do you think? I'm thankful to Him that our relationship is continuing. Let's keep it up by doing the right things. Both of us have lived ungodly lives in the past and we both know it didn't work and won't ever work without Him. Let us encourage one another, love one another and be there for each other. Let us not feel guilty about our sins, but confess them so that He can use US to be effective witnesses for the lost. And that we will not please man but please God. I love you Angie. Have a great day tomorrow!
