Dr. Norman Vincent Peale (and other treasures!)

One of the toughest yet most soul-enlarging experiences surrounding moving is re-living all of those great memories captured in photos.   This amazing shot is of my son, Anthony, who at the time was three years old.  That was over twenty-two years ago as he is now twenty-five.  Obviously 'tickled' by something being said to him by the late, great Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Anthony has a wonderfully pure reaction to the affectionate gesture he is receiving.
   Dr. Peale was a regular guest at the Crystal Cathedral and Hour Of Power. He was a good friend and a mentor to both my father-in-law, Dr. Robert H. Schuller, and my husband, Dr. Robert Anthony Schuller.  I'm so grateful that I was able to capture this special moment between two great people who were downstairs in the Blue Room.  What a blessing it was to know and spend time with this great man and to have a son like Anthony for all of these years.

...Now back to packing

  1. I pray you you have more "soul-enlarging experiences" as you sort through and re-live wonderful times. Thanks for sharing this 22 year old photo showing unbridled JOY in that moment shared by Anthony and Dr Peale!
