ncaa hoopla results

Well, the Florida Gators repeats as national champions in men’s college basketball.  Several weeks ago, I put up a last minute NCAA Men’s Tournament Bracket and 22 folks signed up – from within Quest, Seattle, couple around the country, and 1 blog subscriber (& missionary) from Russia.  Who won?  You might be surprised…a dietician at Quest named Sandra E.  That’s right.  There were easily over 1.7 million participants in this Yahoo Tournament League and she placed in 118th place!

Here’s the top 5 in this league of 22 participants:

1 Sandra’s                         179 53 of 63          99th        118
2 California Golden Bears  158 44 of 63          97th        41976
3 Go Fighting Illini!             145 48 of 63         93rd        120564
4 PAC-10 Rules!                 121 48 of 63         79th        405962
5 Shouldn’t u be working? 103 44 of 63         64th        715658

Much kudos to Sandra – maybe (?) with a little assistance from her husband,  Brian Ehrhart who placed 10th in the league.  This is pretty amazing.  She finished in the 99th percentile – in 118th place!  Congratulations!  You get bragging rights and a cup of free coffee & a bag of great coffee beans from Q Cafe.  FWIW,  I finished a respectable 7th in the league but only in the 61st percentile – in 769,199th place.

    Georgia Tech and UCLA losing screwed me. ;-)

    That’s my girl! Alright Sandra! Wow 99th percent!

    And for the record – I had little to do with it. :)

    Ohio State getting shut out of two national championships proves to me that God is real, and that He loves me dearly. :)

Final sunset.

Aloha. Mahalo. Hana hou. Ohana.

Thank you, Kona, the Whitlocks, YWAM, sea turtles, Nemo, Restorers DTS, and Scandinavian Shaved Ice. Our three children.

One will be heading off to college in one year. The 2nd in three years. In six years, Minhee and I will be empty nesters. As a young parent, my prayers for them often surrounded their purpose in life. While I still ponder those things, there are three things that I most pray for:

1. That they may love Christ and obey Christ. Not just the idea but to actually follow Christ and thus, to love people.

2. To hold God's Word - the Holy Scriptures - dear and near to their hearts.

3. To love one another and be there for one another for life. To be loyal to one another. To protect one another. To never allow pettiness, conflicts, jealousy,  money, or whatever to get between them in the future. Ever. 
May it be so. Amen. Kona sunset. #nofilter

Perhaps from the outside...things look great but this has been one of the most challenging years of our life. The most painful has involved one of our kids who've had to endure through a lifelong chronic illness. This year, we've gone to the hospital 3-4 times/week trying to get her better. Ups and downs. Emotional roller coaster. Parents will understand this but nothing hurts more than a sick child...especially when you can't "fix" the situation. We were praying that our trip to Hawaii would be a balm for her soul...but it has been hard. Really hard. Lots of tears hard. But soaking in this sunset with our kids is something we don't want to take for granted.

We continue to pray and hope. Hope is not that God promises us perfection or everything we want but that in all situations...God is with us. Believing - while faltering - in this truth for our child.
