Catch Up and Must Do
Chuck is a wonderful husband and father. He is a deacon at the Pitman church. He is the captain of a tug boat. It's a tough life. He is on the job 2 weeks and at home 1 week. When he's on the job, his little tug boat does remarkable feats for such a little guy. When they have a job they have to do, they say that they're "in the game." Now, Chuck and Andrea are my Facebook friends. Some of Chuck's "status" reports over the last few weeks have told a little of his story. On January 15, the day the US Airways jet had to land in the Hudson River, Chuck was not too far away. Here is a list of some of his status posts on Facebook:

Charles is wishing that I could be at worship with my family.
Enjoy a few of the pics that came by way of Chuck and stay with us as we continue the discussion next week on THE POWER OF CHRIST IN ME. When you look at a little tugboat, what do you see? I see sooooo much power! When I look at you, what do I see? I see the power of Christ in you!!
Our view pushing crane...
WEEKS 533 ready to pick up a 330,000 pound service crane on a sub dry dock.
One day, I hope Andrea uses her gift of writing to write a series of children's books similar to the "Little Engine that Could" but using her real life husband and his tug boat.
