My youngest son, Mark, finished his last final exam this afternoon. This means he's completed his B.A. in business and economics at Cal-State Fullerton (my alma mater as well). Mark hasn't quite figured out what comes next, but as the picture indicates, he'll cast a long shadow!
This is quite an emotional day for his mother and father, who have watched two wonderful little boys grow to Christian manhood. I'm proud of them both. Mark's older brother Dave (pictured below in full "big brother" stance), has completed college and grad school (USC) and is now working for Honda in R & D.
So, Mick and I have gone from annual celebrations of the first day of a new school year to seeing Mark complete his college education. This is a day of great thankfulness, a bit of pride, and much joyful reflection on God's faithfulness to his covenant promises.
But lest I get lost in the moment, congrats Mark, on a job well done! Go get `em son!
