Golf Tournament Recap

I had every intention of getting this post up yesterday... but truthfully, I was just exhausted.

The 1st Annual Isaac Timothy Delisle Memorial Golf Tournament was awesome! 104 golfers came out to play, despite crazy thunderstorms causing an hour delay in getting started, and coming back at the end of the round. Golfers were wonderful about hanging out in the clubhouse during the time we were delayed, and truthfully, once they got back out on the course, it was beautiful. Until the storms came back, that is! Everyone was in great spirits when they returned after their round to join us for dinner, and that part of the evening went great as well. We had an amazing group of volunteers doing everything from helping get people signed in, greeting golfers at holes, driving snack carts, setting up centerpieces, and taking pictures. God provided so abundantly for this day.

And while the golf shirts and towels we had ordered looked awesome, everything was organized from a logistical standpoint, and over $6,000 was raised for the perinatal loss unit at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, I don't believe those are the things that made the day great.

The day was great because Isaac was remembered, God was glorified, and hearts were touched.

Below are several pictures from the day... I hope you enjoy them!

I'm so happy that the tournament turned out great! We were praying for it and I'm so glad God answered the prayers! I'm sure that 6,000 will be multiplied and blessed by God even more!

I know that must have taken a lot of effort to put on that tournament,..but it was a great cause and I am so glad that it went well. Inspite of the thunderstorms and rain,....God allowed it to all work out for good!

It was amazing,...and I am so glad that so many people rallied around to help you with it in honor of little Isaac. Praise God!

I know that the money will be a blessing to those who need it,... who are,... or will be in similar circumstances.

I know it must have been a bittersweet experience for you and your husband, I wish I could give you both a big ((hug)).

Rest up and recoup today,...and may the Lord richly bless you.
