This is me. Many moons ago, in ancient times, when bad hair days meant something to me.
I am older now.
I have less hair.
I believe I have more wisdom.
I am less fully dependent on others.
I am more in need of true friends.
I need an "'atta boy!" less.
I choose to give extravagant encouragement whenever possible.
I have less time to sleep.
I make more time to dream.
"When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me." 1 Cor. 13:11
I'm thankful that God has given me the incredibly blessed life that I have. A Savior who lives, breathes, and is fully present in every aspect of my life. A wife who shows me what true loyalty and sacrifice is all about. Two kids who help me learn to celebrate the JOY of the moment. A church that, beyond a shadow of a doubt, has helped me draw closer to God. Friends who lift me up and challenge me to greater things. Today, I am truly grateful. TODAY is the best gift I can receive.
