General Eva

a Biblical thought...
May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. (2 Thess. 2:16-17)

a Book thought...
Those who listen closely to the Lord and subsequently do as he directs obviously love him. Conversely, people who constantly resist God’s directions are demonstrating their lack of love for God. (p52)
a Dave thought...
Last night was a sensational evening as we celebrated General Eva Burrows 80th birthday. To hear the stories of her life was truly inspiring. Eva was made General at 59 and held this appointment for seven years. She was the youngest ever appointed general and the second woman. During her first five years as general she visited 62 countries and her words were translated into 41 languages.
As part of the celebrations Carol Jaudes from NY gave a world exclusive performance of “The 3 Bonnets” which was just incredible being both entertaining and informative. After being amazed by Eva's achievements I am reminded of meeting her as a teen over twenty years ago when she greeted me by name and always knew what I was up to, this has continued even to this very day. Eva is a living legend and as she is aptly described Eva Burrows will always be known as “The People’s General.”

Just a thought.
