Happy 37th Anniversary!

Happy 37th anniversary to my bride, wife, best friend, lover, ministry partner, fellow traveler, and lover of Jesus. While the years may have changed us and we may have moved around the country, my love for you has deepened and my commitment grows ever stronger. 37 years is too short a time to be married to your best beloved. May the adventure continue for many more years to come!

What would my mother think?

Would my mother be more horrified that: (1) I have a broken leg/hip and need a walker to get around; or (2) I wore sweats to church today? I’m guessing the latter. 😉

Happy Birthday, Jon!

Happy 31st Birthday to our son, Jonathan! You’ve grown from a cute, fun-loving little boy to a wise, talented, godly adult. Mom & I are proud of you. We’re excited to see how God will use for his kingdom purposes. May God grant you many more years to grow in your relationship with Christ and to serve him with joy. Celebrate!

New Zealand Adventures – Queenstown

We are in Queenstown, our final night in New Zealand. We took the Skyline Gondola to the top of Bob’s Peak. From there, we had a magnificent view of Queenstown and the surrounding countryside. We even picked out the hotel we’re staying in. We enjoyed a dinner at Taco Medic and dessert at Cookie Bar. We even discovered that Hell is a real place down under (just a little theological tongue-in-cheek).

Tomorrow morning, we begin the long journey home. With flights, layovers, and drive time, it is 30+ hours of travel. It’s been a fabulous trip.
