Searching for Birthday Wisdom
Today, I turn the ripe old age of 34. I know, some of you have cheese in the back of your fridge older than that, but it still feels like a milestone.
I wish I had some witty reflection to give you. Maybe I could relay a spiritual insight of some sort. Perhaps I could just be funny and entertaining…
Alas, I don’t feel deep wells flowing in that sense. Instead, I’m struck again with the simplicity that makes life so rich.
I love my God and He continually blows me away with His love.
I have a wife who is amazing, the perfect compliment to my strengths and weaknesses. The bond of love we share is a daily choice I make intentionally and gratefully.
My kids and family teach me so much–supporting, grounding, and carrying me. I watch miracles happen in their hearts and lives and I am thankful.
I could go on to mention the church I pastor, work I do, blog community I get to engage in, and more, but really all I want to say is…
I am blessed and I am thankful. Happy birthday to me.
