I promise to be true to you, in good times and in bad, in sickness and health, for richer, for poorer. I will love you and honor you all the days of my life.

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.
