Congrats Mark!

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!

Congratulations! As the father of three boys I'm continually amazed at how fast they grow up. Our youngest son, Cooper, (he'll be 3 in May of 2013) has a T-shirt that states, "I still live with my parents". <grin>

Thanks as well, Kim, for your work with the guys at WHI. I share the material with friends and family constantly. It's all very much needed and very much appreciated.

Congratulations, Mark. It has been wonderful to see you grow up and to develop into a young man, so full of potentials. May the Lord bless you and guide you in the months to come.

There's so much I could say, but this little box isn't big enough. Mark and David are just the nicest young men I know... They are blessed to have had you both to guide and nurture them.

Congratulations to Mark (and David) on their wonderful accomplishments. I remember when they were little and now they stand at church and serve us on Sunday morning. What an incredible blessing it has been to see these wonderful boys grow into fine men. Kim and Micki, with God's help you have done an amazing job raising your children.
