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…

One Day’s Wages

Quintessential Seattle summer night... Exciting news! While I can't share the specifics yet, Jeremy Lin (@jlin7) and @onedayswages will be partnering together. 
About a year ago, Jeremy reached out after he read my book, Overrated. We talked about, faith, gospel, justice, tenacity, influence, breaking ankles with our crossovers. Eventually, one thing led to another and then dreaming about collaboration for the greater Kingdom.

I appreciate his heart, his humility, and his commitment to use his platform for Christ. And of course, I'm thrilled for his new chapter as the starting point guard for the Brooklyn Nets. He's gonna have a great season. #jeremylin #linsanity #onedayswages #nba #brooklynnets // photo credit: @lovitylove I was trying to have a tender father-daughter grown up talk moment before she heads off to college next month. As in like, "Hey, you're a grown up now, floss regularly,  know who you are, what you're about, study hard, don't succumb to peer pressure, your relationship with God is the first priority, don't take too many selfies, know the difference between "their', 'there', and they're', watch out for boys and their cooties"... but...I'm having a difficult...time...focusing. This fall, I'm marking 25 years of serving as a pastor in the local church. Served in Sacramento, CA, Flushing NY, Princeton, NJ, Seoul, Korea, Lynnwood, WA, and now about 17 years in the city of Seattle. Minhee has been on this journey with me for almost 20 years. 
So many ups and downs. Lots of tears and restless nights. Lots of personal doubts and insecurities. But ultimately, we've experienced that God's grace is sufficient in our weakness. 
And along the way, so many incredible and indelible memories. 
Especially grateful to be invited into the joyous celebrations and also the deep moments of vulnerability and pain. Through it all, what an amazing joy and privilege to bear witness to the grace and love of Christ. Palm trees make everything feel better. Thank you to the kind folks of Mount Hermon for hosting us. Thank you, Santa Cruz for being Santa Cruz. We all have fears because we're human. Name your fears. Have courage. Work through them.

Super proud of the kids for working through their fear of heights and making it through the ropes course challenge and the ziplines.
