A Tribute To A Friend

I began blogging in March 2007 after talking to someone already doing it, and reading a magazine article in Citizen. I had no idea that I'd actually make friends of sorts at it when I started. I can't remember how, but somehow I discovered Jon at Tiger's Got My Back and I've been visiting his blog ever since. We're even going to have coffee.... some day.. if he stays in Denver, I'm confident of that. Its just a matter of planet alignment or something.

You learn all kinds of stuff blogging. I learned a new word from Jon: DINK. (Dual Income No Kids) But Jon is no longer a DINK because of the NK part. A lot can happen in two years. I also learned that he was in seminary and had a couple of years left before finishing. Well, this weekend marks the end of those two years and so I'd like to take a moment to give Jon a great big hearty congratulations. Way to go Jon! Now for a kind admonition: Get back to blogging! :-)

What a wonderful connection. I followed the link....what a great post of a very important scripture. Thanks!

Hey, planets align ... as demonstrated by the fact that we finally met over coffee, eh? Oh, and in case I didn't express it, nice to meet you. :)

Congratulations to the graduate and his family! God's blessings as He continues to order your steps.

Jon said...

Wow, I am flattered to have a post dedicated to me! Thanks so much for the great graduation gift. I do still intend for us to meet for coffee--I'm not leaving Denver anytime soon--and I also intend to start blogging more regularly again. The past few months have been very busy, and I didn't figure people would want to be deluged with blog posts about New Testament theology, which was about the only topic of depth on which I could focus.

Watch out, blogosphere, here I come! I am Tigris Redivivus!
