I've been a student, cooked with chefs, bartended, driven big trucks,
raised 3 children, home-schooled them, taught private school, studied
to be a missionary, been a cabinet shop foreman, I have even been a janitor
at my church, built houses and torn them down and after praying about
your question about what I do now, the Lord told me I'm a servant. Not
Mr. Adams, just Howard or Buster.
Currently I'm just trying to finish college, (student) you know. Heck,
I'm just thankful to make it through today and hopefully get to see y'all.
Yo class of 71 kick butt and take names. I don't want anyone to think
I'm perfect or anything. I still haven't learned to walk on water or float.
HA just a saint tryin' to let GOD happen, same as you!!!!! After graduation
I worked for a law firm as an accident investigator while going to SAC
for college basics. Then I cooked for Cappy Lawton for a few years you
know Mama's, Hofbrau, The Backyard, and I even helped open the Cappy's
! in Heights. I worked with Jana for awhile. I quit and went to work driving
an 18 wheeler long haul truck for locally owned Kinetic Concepts. I did
that for about 10 yrs.
I am divorced and have three wonderful children: Sarah Maria, Joey
Alexander, and Justin Taylor.
I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 2 yrs. before I got divorced,
got fired because of a drug test and I lost my mom. "Hmm", I
said and then the greatest thing happened to me. Just like those old boys
in the movie "OH BROTHER WHERE ART THOU", JESUS walked into
my life and forgave me of all my sins. If it sounds like I'm braggin'
it's because I am. Now I go to bed and get up every mornin thankin Him
for my salvation YE HAH! If I were to give any advice it would start at
the foot of the cross. That and learn to overcome adversity because we
have a choice: start livin or start dyin, stop or start, stay down or
get up and fight.
Since the 2001 Reunion, some things have happened (trigeminal facial neuralgia)
that have only increased my faith. Maybe sometime I'll get to tell you
the whole story. There's enough that would fill a book. In the book of
Hebrews, chapter 13 at the end of verse 5 says, "... because God
has said, 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."........
Sounds like a promise to me ...... and to you, I hope you have the very
happiest of New Year's. Howard
