Today I am fifty one years old. I haven’t blogged in a few weeks so I thought this would be a good day for it. It’s been a pretty active few weeks so this is honestly the first day I’ve sat still long enough to write. Whew! It’s hard to know where to start. You know writing blogs is funny. To do this you have to either assume that people are actually interested enough in your life to read what you put down, or you have to simply not care what people like and write because you just want to, or need to express what’s rolling around in your mind. I’m still not sure which of those best describes me at the moment. Anyway here is a quick summary of the last three weeks. Two of my children graduated, School ended for the summer with an awesome Senior play, directed by yours truly, revival broke out on campus as students began to experience God’s love and power in a fresh way, several students at another school surrendered their lives to Christ in their spiritual emphasis week, healing continues to happen in church, and in unusual places out in the community, my youngest son broke the school record for chin ups during field day, We’re hoping to finish his Eagle scout project this week, I’ve turned 51, as mentioned earlier, resumed the annual battle of the weeds in my 1 1/2 acre yard, and am gearing up for a long awaited vacation before a summer of youth camp resumes in June. Did I forget anything? Probably. Whew! All this has made me tired. I’m gonna go take a break. Before I do I just want to say that all this activity, wearying as it is gives me cause to celebrate. I’m glad at my age life is more about what is to come than what used to be. God has been awesome n my life, even in the hard times. But He is still at work and leading into greater revelations of himself. Reminds me of what the prophet Haggai said, “The latter glory shall be greater than the former glory.” In other words, you aint seen nothin’ yet. No sitting around pining over the good old days, at least not yet. God is always giving vision and hope for the future for those who are willing to keep looking ahead.
