To Shoot Par

What does “to shoot par” mean for you? I learned this weekend that it all depends on who you spend time with. I enjoy the game of golf and I have strengthened many of friendships on the links. I initially took up the game of golf while in high school as something I could do with my future wife (and then girlfriend), and has become a hobby of mine long after my wife’s interest in the game has faded.

June 3rd Wedding

Another June 3rd

Today I got to update my about page:

Rule Over Us

The Israelites said to Gideon, “Rule over us–you, your son and your grandson–because you have saved us from the hand of Midian.” But Gideon told them, “I will not rule over you, nor will my son rule over you. The LORD will rule over you.” (Judges 8:22-23, NIV)
