Ivan Tom

Tonight we were out running errands.  We had a few stops to make.  Since Levi is doing such a great job with potty training, we had to stop when from the back seat we heard him yell "I have to go...." So we found a McDonald's and also got some dinner.  We found a table and sat next to Ivan Tom.  Ivan Tom was so sweet and was talking to us about our children.  He told us that he was one of 16 children and that he was right in the middle.  He encouraged us and asked us if we were Christians right after Mark prayed before we ate.  We said "yes we are" and he told us he was too.  Then we talked about church and the blessing that children are. He encouraged us to "train them up in the way they should go."  He then shared with us that he has 4 sons and his youngest son is our Senator Rodney Tom.  It's always neat to visit with people.  You just never know who will encourage you or who you might get to encourage. 
But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called "Today," so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.  Hebrews 3:13
