Kayhla Is A Buckeye For Life

Well, I am only almost four weeks late in writing this, but on May 5th, my daughter graduated from The Ohio State University.

She always said she would not go to Ohio State because that is where I graduated from, but, thankfully,  she came to her senses.  Now she is a part of Buckeye Nation for life.

I have to be honest and say I wasn’t sure if she would finish her education. After going to Ohio State for almost two years, she married and moved to Virginia and I did not think she would stick with it. But she took online classes and then moved back to Ohio. For the last year and a half she drove 90 minutes one way to go to classes and she did it.

She majored in psychology, probably to try and figure me out, and received a job offer in her field. She will be working with children with autism.

Congratulations Kayhla, I am so proud of you and I love you.

Kelsey’s Graduation and Natalie Grant/Jeremy Camp Concert

In my effort to try to still get caught up, here is a weekend we had in April.  Doesn’t seem that long ago but it has already been seven weeks.

Kelsey graduated from Ohio University in four years.  We are so proud of her and the young lady she is becoming. Soon, probably too soon, she will be heading out west to ,hopefully, start her own company with her boyfriend.

Then the next night we went and saw Natalie Grant and Jeremy Camp in concert. Jeremy is my wife’s favorite artist and every time we see him, we get to meet and talk to him. Sometimes it is meet and greet where we pay a little more, other times it is by staying after the show and waiting to see if he will come back and other times it is because of my wife the stalker that gets lucky and sees him in a dark alley….kidding, sort of.  It always amazes me how he remembers her. “Hey, how you doing, how was your last marathon.” That type of thing. He even had a first this time, Kim had him sign her Boston Marathon medal and he said he had never signed a marathon medal before. He is always gracious and a super nice guy.jereIMG_2738IMG_2754IMG_2744IMG_2751IMG_2769

Graduation Song

 

May is graduation month. I wrote this a year ago.  Hope you like it.  Let’s turn it into a song-  contact me.

Graduation Song

Going off to college
Filling your head with knowledge
Don’t wish away your youth
Never forget God is the truth

Maybe college isn’t your thing

Maybe you have some other dream

Don’t be afraid to reach for the stars
Having a good character will take you far

When challenges face you
Ask what would Jesus do
When you are pressured
Remember in God you are treasured

Put your faith in Jesus
He is always with us
When you are up late at night
I pray you will do what is right

My child, going out on your own
Hard to believe how fast you’ve grown
I know in God’s arms you will be held
I put my trust in He who has never failed

Choose your friends wisely
Don’t follow them blindly
Call home more than you thought you would
Say I love you more than you think you should

Don’t forget where you come from
Remember when this life is done
You will account for your time on this earth
Did you live for what His dying was worth

Forgive as you have been forgiven
Be joyful in this life you are livin’
Smile and laugh, speak of Him often
His words are never to be forgotten

My child, going out on your own
Hard to believe how much you’ve grown
I know in God’s arms you will be held
I put my trust in He who has never failed

Our house will always be your home
It’s hard to believe how fast you’ve grown
Enjoy life, you won’t be alone in the big out there
God’s promises, our love, we will always care

My child, going out on your own
Hard to believe how much you’ve grown
I know in God’s arms you will be held
I put my trust in He who has never failed

I put my trust in He who has never failed
