Hi my name is John Alvin Thompson. yes my middle name is Alvin. I think my mom and dad gave me that middle name kind of like the Johnny Cash song (my name is sue). wanted me to be prepared to protect my self from the bad guys cause i wasnt going to be very tall. I guess 5-7 is not as short as so many others. I have 3 sons, 8 grandkids,and 1 dog. oh i forgot about my wife,we have been married for 35 years.dont know why that long but she hung on to me and i still wonder why.
Yes i was such a sinner. I know how much i hurt my precious father God and his son Jesus Christ. In july 2001 i came down with a brain tumor. I was given 5-7 years to live cause no one has lived that long with my type of cancer. My doctors were wrong,they are happy but were wrong. God has me here for a reason and sometimes i still wonder why. besides my brain tumor, i have chrons disease, skin cancer,and had a major stroke. Do i ask God why? not any more. I just live for him and thank him each and everyday for giving me this much time to be with my family. Not sure if my wife will ever forgive me for the things i did in my life but i know God has.
So i hope i have not ran away any of my friends here on ss. when i give a testimony at churches i dont leave anything out,cause God knows everything about me and that is all that matters. oh dont forget God loves you toooooooooo. john
