Nice Ring To It

Several weeks ago I was shocked to discover that the Peterborough Petes were going to give me one of their OHL Championship rings. When GM Jeff Twohey asked for my ring size I was taken aback. This had never happened before. I was with the Toronto Blue Jays for their two World Series championships but never expected nor received anything like this.

Now, after 1o fruitful years of ministry to the Petes, they had honored me in this way. It was humbling! Today I went to their office to pick up my ring. To me it will be a reminder of God's faithfulness and His way of saying, "Be not weary in well doing, for in due season you will reap if you faint not." - Galatians 6:9

It was hard to get a close up of this ring. The glow from the jewels made it difficult. My name is incribed on one side.

Thank you Father for life's little surprises. This one came when I needed a little "pick me up".


  1. What a wonderful gift and lovely reminder! I hope you are feeling better! Take good care!

    In Him,

  2. Wow! What a nice surprise for you...God has certainly rewarded you!

    Now be careful with that ring...I noticed that due to the number of "jewels" that it was hard to get a clear's very bright! That being said, be careful when walking out to your car! If you happen to be wearing your ring and the sun hits it, it could cause a glare in my eyes and I might hit a parked car in the parking lot!! :)

    Enjoy your nice of the Petes to remember you...they obviously know what an important part of the team you are!
