In the past two weeks Angela and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary, my 51st birthday and our granddaughter’s 1st birthday and in two weeks I will celebrate the 25th anniversary of my ordination, the day I got all Rev’d up.
So in thinking of that, two things crossed my mind. The first was, “where did all the time go?”, and the second was, “what am I going to do with the second half of my life?” Not bad so far though. I have pastored three growing churches, have a beautiful grand-daughter, 2 great kids and am still married to the girl I fell in love with 30 years ago. It’s hard to beat that.
Jesus’ brother James compared our lives to a morning mist, here for a bit and then gone, but each one of us will choose what we will or won’t do with the time we have here, however fleeting or lingering that time might be.
Our high school graduates are about to begin a brand new chapter in their lives and we encourage them to be sure to make good choices.
But why limit it to them? Maybe the rest of us need a reminder as well that it’s never too late to make good choices.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
