32 years ago today I did something that I will regret the rest of my life and something that I will take pride in the rest of my life.
So what is it that I’m most proud of…my wife Sarah and I made our covenant with the Lord on this day in 1987. I promised to love her, honor her and accept children lovingly from God. I pray she thinks I’m batting 1.000. I love her more today and will love her more tomorrow. I smiled when my father spoke these words to us 32 years ago…”What God has joined let no man divide.” Amen. Happy Anniversary Sarah. I love you very much.
So what is it that I regret from this day? I missed a 2ft putt 18 and bogeyed the hole. Are you thinking “He played a round of golf on his wedding day?” And I am answering with – Family Tradition. I had an early afternoon wedding, so we tee’d off at 6AM. Almost lost a brother in law (Brett) after one of my brothers – won’t mention his name but the initials are John Clifford – jokingly hit a golf ball back into our group at about 150 miles an hour just missing Brett’s head. Ah, the memories.
Do something great for our Lord today – tell your spouse how much you love him/her.
God’s will, not mine, be done.
Be not afraid; just have faith.
Jesus, I trust in You.
He must increase; I must decrease.
And finally, after 51 long years, the Blues have finally gotten off the goose egg and are now 1-13 in Stanley Cup Final games. Let’s Go Blues.
