A very memorable day.
Those who have followed these updates for a long time may know that we have an annual professional golf tournament pilgrimage. Today was the day we attended the Dunhill Links Golf Championship played at Carnoustie, St. Andrews and Kinsbarns. We went to Kingsbarns because the major players were there.
My two oldest went with me and Jim Knies. We collected Don Dillman on the way and met my brother in law, Kirk.
I'm smiling as I type this. (If you are uninterested in golf continue reading because you may know some of these.) Benson and Kay Lee got a once in a lifetime experience. Benson got a golf ball from Martin Kaymer's caddy. Martin signed it for him and signed Kay Lee's brochure. Next Oscar Pistorius', the South African Paralympic blade runner, caddy gave Benson a ball. Oscar then signed Benson's ball and Kay Lee's program. Pablo Larrazabal gave Benson and Kay Lee a ball. AND (drum roll please) Michael Phelps, American swimmer, signed Benson's ball and Kay Lee's program. Don Dillman got a good picture of Michael which I'll put below. Sir Steve Redgrave, Olympic rower, gave them both autographs as well. Wow...what a day.
The Lord also gave a few divine appointments today to witness briefly and give tracts. Two of those divine appointments helped Benson and Kay Lee get autographs. Sometimes the Lord just gives you the icing on the cake. Praising the Lord for a good day.
Oh, and one more thing to make all those who enjoy watching golf just a tiny bit jealous....this is a free tournament. :)
