My Life Verse

God causes all things to work together for good, for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose...

Throughout my life, in all its ups and downs, this has been the one constant truth I can confess.

Well said and I couldn't agree more wholeheartedly. The Duke was the embodiment of an American man's man- and off screen he was no less a man's man being a good family man and raising his children in a faithful and loving manner. It is important to note that the icons (or heroes) of our youth are often also the icons and heroes of our adulthood and that despite what some who have you believe, those people are image builders of the values that we strive to emulate. My father was a big fan of Rock Hudson and though he totally enjoyed the movies that the The Duke made, I think my father wanted to emulate Rock Hudson-- that was until one day years later in his life he read that Rock Hudson was a die-in-the-wool homosexual-- that revelation really impacted him badly. Another example of how believing in an icon or hero can be fraught with emotional, personal and belief perils if not tempered with a good dose of caution.
