A Man's Man

Jack Jones had the strongest hand shake I have every felt, but also the biggest heart of any man. He was truly a great man and more of a father than father-in-law. A passage that was underlined in his Bible was Psalm 112, which is a Psalm that he lived out on a daily basis. I was so honored to have Jack in my life and words cannot describe the void that is left in my life now that he is in Heaven with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Psalm 112:7

1 Praise the Lord!
Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,
who greatly delights in his commandments!

2 His offspring will be mighty in the land;
the generation of the upright will be blessed.

3 Wealth and riches are in his house,
and his righteousness endures forever.

4 Light dawns in the darkness for the upright;
he is gracious, merciful, and righteous.

5 It is well with the man who deals generously and lends;
who conducts his affairs with justice.

6 For the righteous will never be moved;
he will be remembered forever.

7 He is not afraid of bad news;
his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.

8 His heart is steady; he will not be afraid,
until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.

9 He has distributed freely; he has given to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever;
his horn is exalted in honor.

10 The wicked man sees it and is angry;
he gnashes his teeth and melts away;
the desire of the wicked will perish!
