Happy Birthday Wishes from Rev. Dr. Alvin C. Hathaway, Sr. to Mrs. Twelvatine “Tina” Crowell Nesbitt

One of the difficulties in my ministry is my inability to be in two places at one time. I unfortunately had a prior commitment that has prevented me from personally conveying these sentiments to my dear friend “Tina.”

My relationship with “Tina” extends for many years. From my days in junior high school, playing in Edmondson Village, and attending those red lights in the basement parties. “Tina” and I developed a plutonic relationship that took on the qualities of a brother and a sister. She was my big sister my mother and father did not give me. She was a confidant whose advice I respected and followed. She was as the Bible declares, a friend that sticks closer than a brother.”

Knowing “Tina’ brought me into relationship with an amazing array of her friends who befriended me and whose friendship I still cherish.

We never know how the hand of God may lead you. But, what we do know is that when you place your faith in God, he leads you in paths of righteous and he leads you beside the still waters of life.

“Tina” has been that friend over the years that I have had the pleasure to tabernacle with. She has been a friend who I respect highly and dearly.

She has achieved a milestone in her life by celebrating 65 years on earth firmly being held by the hands of almighty God. She is an authentic Christian who lives out her faith without pretense or fanfare. She is my beloved in whom I am well pleased.

Enjoy your moments of celebration and continue to thank God for his grace and mercy that is following you.

Be assured that even as I write this note, I’m praying for you, your family and friends. And always remember you are loved, admired and cherish by many, and especially by me.


Happy Birthday!!
