Happy Birthday Aaron

Happy birthday Aaron! Thirty four years ago today Aaron was born. When he was born the name Aaron was very rare, now it is much more common but in 1973 it became popular. That was the year that Hank Aaron broke records in the game of baseball. His name was every where and apparently people liked it, at least his last name. Aaron was also the name of the articulate brother of Moses according to the holy Bible. With a name like that how could you go wrong.

Aaron has lived up to his name. He was a good baseball player but really excelled at the game of golf. His prep school days were during the time that Tiger Woods was also coming up in the game of golf, he was the guy to beat. He also played on the same prep school team as Doug LaBelle who is now a member of the PGA. Aaron was coming on strong in the golf world but after a summer of internship as an assistant golf professional while in college he decided to change his path.

Aaron now works for our family business and like his Biblical name sake is an articulate man of God. Since his father passed away in 2004 after a two year illness Aaron has become the family spokes man. He is a strong leader of his brothers and sister and a role model of Christian grace.

These last few years have been difficult for him on several fronts but he, by the grace of God, has survived and grown to further his testimony reflecting the Lords promise to be with us through it all. It blesses me to see a smile on his face once again and hear the laughter, that was for so long stifled by grief, reappear.

God bless you my son, the gift that God so generously bestowed on your Father and I to raise. May you continue to grown in your walk with the Lord. I love you with all my heart and wish you the happiest of birthdays and blessing through out your life.
