happy birthday to my wife

A sincere Happy Birthday – today – to my wife, Minhee, on her 38th birthday.  I know that folks don’t like their ages to be published but in her case, it’s ok since she’s aged so well…

Both my wife and I constantly hear how young we both look.  We still occasionally get carded when we order some wine or beer.  There are some folks that get shocked when they see us walking around with our three children.  And so, while folks sort of smile at us because we look so young right now, let me be honest with y’all.  We will be laughing at all our non-Asian friends when we all turn 60 around the same time in the future.  You will look your age at 60 but we’ll be looking 40.  And yes, we will rub it in.  :)

The first picture is Minhee during college and the second was taken last month.  Thank you, Minhee, for your deep devotion, friendship and partnership.  Happy Birthday.

And by the way, she says she wants the following items for her birthday.  She asked that you deliver it to me so I can deliver it to her.

  • 52 inch Plexiglass Portable Basketball Hoop
  • Makita PowerDrill Set
  • Canon Rebel XTi
  • Golf Clubs

    Wonderful blessings to you, dear Minhee! Do you remember the blueberry cheesecake with your nickname on it? That was how many years ago? It seems like yesterday…

#NatureIsMyLoveLanguage 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. My Hawaiian Seattle Korean queen. #kona @minheejcho A family that hikes together stays together. #kona #pololuvalley
