Dear Friends who read my blog, I want to share with you an email I
received tonight from my friend Bob Karger. Bob is the editor of
Christian Voices, an inspirational email piece he sends out a couple of
times a week. This magazine is free via email and includes humour and
inspirational messages. Bob wants more readers and below is his email
address to subscribe. Be sure you tell him you read about it in Dan
Really, I owe more to Bob than I can ever repay. For the past 7 years as
a chaplain at a hospital I often send inspirational stories and humour.
To be truthful most of the humour I have sent out came from Bob. The
humour has been a tremendous inspiration to over 1000 hospital workers
who get my notes. I can't tell you how many times Bob's humour has
helped our hospital workers who have had a really tough job. So thanks
Bob I can never repay for you have done. Keep up the good work and
friends write to firstname.lastname@example.org
for a free subscription.
