My name is Dwayne Peterkin. I was re-baptized April 2011 and since then I have been doing my best to obey the Lord Jesus Christ and do his will. In this sinful world IT IS NOT EASY to stand up for God. You'll be tested, friendships may fall by the wayside, old habits will fade away. I hope that as I share my Faith Walk, others are encouraged on theirs. I hope you join me on this journey.

Real Talk….

Let me start by saying I am blessed and highly favored. My oldest son is home for the holidays and it is great to see him and talk with him as he is coming into his manhood.  He has a real good head on his shoulders and I am extremely proud of him. As he lives out of state we do not see each other as often as we would like to but we have an unbreakable bond that does not require us to even speak to know how the other feels.  We definitely spend “quality time” when we are together and even when we are apart, whenever we speak, it’s all good!

Thinking of the relationship we have and how I feel, it makes me feel like this is a small glimpse of the relationship God the Father has with his son Jesus.  I’ve been having some really good conversations, “real talk” as it were, and it is very filling.  Good for the soul.

In light of last Friday’s incident in Connecticut, I believe parents around the nation (and the world for that matter)  are appreciating their children more and that is a good thing.  Maybe they will turn off the TV and talk and interact more with them and take advantage of the precious time they have together.  I pray people take time to have “real talk” with their children no matter their age and get to know their children and not just co-exist with them or be estranged from them. 

I’m truly enjoying my oldest son at this time and watching him interact with his younger brother and other members of the family. I played a few games of 21 with my son’s on the court the other day….PRICELESS!  I don’t know, I guess I’m just real happy and just wanted to share.  So No bible verses, no quotes, I’m just happy and blessed….Real talk….

Until later, I’m just tryingtobeamanofgod!

Blessings….

Dwayne
