God has really given me a long life. Wow! As I look back, I cannot forget all that He has done for me. He has blessed me greatly. But I haven’t always followed His path or kept my eyes on His purposes. At 18 years old I joined the Canadian Navy during World War II and I forgot all about God. That is, I forgot all about Him until the bombs were going off and I’d make a deal—“save me and I’ll change; I’ll live for you.” But as soon as the fighting calmed, I forgot Him all over again. When I returned home, I was still far from Him. I courted and married Joan, and a few years later we were living in Dallas. That is when our lives changed, when she accepted Jesus as her Lord and I truly recommitted my life to setting my course for His heavenly port.
Yes, looking back I see just how God worked in our lives; it was all By Design and eventually led to the founding of Premier. There have been ups and downs but God has been faithful, and I can’t help but thank Him for all He has done for Premier. We have a powerful Philosophy and Purpose that have impacted and changed countless lives. We have an amazing Premier Family committed to serving and caring for others. We have a strong foundation on the Bible. We must never forget where we came from or what He has done as we continue to serve Him and others through this business. Our future is bright!
