I was in church every Sunday growing up. No exceptions.
We got to take one toy. I always took a G.I. Joe. In my childhood, children were to be seen and not heard.
When I was in third grade, I was walking out of church with my mom. We were in line to shake hands. Pastor Koenig asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.
First, being a good Lutheran, I told him the truth: "I want to be a football player."
Then, because I felt sorry for him, I also said, at the age of 9, "I want to be a football player, or a Pastor."
I have no idea why I said that. I was a kid. It is a mysterious moment in my memories.
It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
