IT happened... On August 26, 2006, the youngest of the 3 Goetz kids became the first to be married. The wedding took place on the foothills of the cascades in Oregon.

Melinda arrived on a horse-drawn cart. Here, Tawnie and I are teaching both the horse and our little sister how to do it!

"It is my privilege to be the first to present to you, Mr. and Mrs. Jason Tabor."

I thought I was going to do alright - but when the music started and my little sister began the walk down... I cried. I am happy for her and the ceremony was wonderful, but something hurt. Congratulations Melinda, I love you!

This summer brought some goodbyes to the Southwest Michigan people. There is something wonderful and almost mystical about friendship.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to see a friend I had not seen in nearly 8 years - To sit down and look at him and talk was best described as "strange." It was someone I knew and considered very close, but to see him was almost like I know you but I don't. Here's what it reminded me of: Jesus says in John 15:15 that he calls us friends - I wonder how it will be to look

into the face of someone we have
conversed with and are very close to but have never seen face to face - I am thinking we will recognize His face, even though it is one we have "never" seen it. It will be wonderful.
So my prayers go with Joelle, Scott, Ana, Christine, and Sarah. I am certain God will use you to reach out to your new spheres of influence.

... Right!

Vas a pensar en espanol!

Searching for "signs" of life.

This introduces my blogging days.
I was hoping to put up some pictures of people and recent events but the camera and I are not getting along.
I am writing from a rather warm Palm Springs California. This next Friday I will take flight to the Northwest. It was around this time last summer that I took a couple of days retreating into the Goat Rock Wilderness of Washington State. I spent a couple days climbing and backpacking. It was as much of a spiritual journey as it was a physical. I was led to understand how God challenges me to climb higher in my relationship with Him. The climb can be difficult but the "view" is worth it. Let's keep climbing those mountains, spiritual and physical!
Hopefully soon the people pictures will arrive.
