3 Decades Later…


Saturday (Oct 6) I will be 30, leaving behind the years of my youth. I read that in the Jewish tradition you couldn’t be a priest until you were at least 30, and someone told me that you could read the Song of Solomon once you reached 30 (so I peeked).


I’m sure that with this news you are immediately thinking, “What should I get Shawn to mark this fantastic occasion”?


Well thanks for thinking of me. You’re too kind. And to return the kindness, I thought I would suggest some gift ideas (I mean, after all, it’s not like I do gift-mass [ie christmas]).


So far I have received Starbuck’s coffee, a new sippie cup, a sweet thermos, gift certificate to 2 restaurants. So clearly people know that I love coffee, and food.


I also like


  • cash/gift certificates
  • books, and
  • cool, but easy to use, technology gadgets [ie toys].

Here are a list of books I thought I would throw out there just for fun:


Eschatologically speaking, I’m 30 days old, 4 weeks old, or a month old… cool.

  1. Happy Birthday ShawnBoy;

    I hope you had a good one… I was off helping at a Barrel Racing
    Event, getting to know some of the locals.

    It is late, I only slept two hours last night…and am very worn,

    Have a Blessed Lord’s day,


    Psalm 68:19

  3. Ein Lied Für Dich!

    Wie gut, dass du geboren bist;
    Wir hätten dich sonst sehr vermisst!
    Wie gut, dass wir beisammen sind;
    Wir gratulieren dir, Geburtstagskind!


  4. Happy birthday Shawn old buddy! I turned 30 yesterday. I guess I didn’t know about the Song of Solomon bit. I hate to say it but I have read it several times already.
    I like your book list you can get me those books for my b-day if you like. I would buy you some, but I have no money.

    What, no books on church government in that list? Are you sure you were once a member of my denomination?!
