Tuesday, January 01, 2008

I remember wondering what life would be like in 2008. I was a senior in high school and about to graduate. I was wondering because 2008 was 20 years in the future. It was 1988 in Abilene, TX. I had no idea what the next 20 years would bring.

Over the last 20 years I have lost many people I love, but I have been blessed beyond my wildest dreams. I met my wife and my three children were brought into the world! I have experienced so many things. The one constant theme has been God's faithfulness.

As we rang in the New Year last night with friends and then spent today at my mom's, I have been reminded again...God IS faithful. I have no idea what 2008 will bring, but I am diving into the deep end knowing "He who began a good work in us will carry it on to completion". Praise God!

Happy New Year, friends!

You graduated high school when I was 3.

Thought you'd appreciate that.

For me it was 1968... and I never could have guessed even a little of all that God has unfolded over the last 40 years. The coolest thing is there are more folds ahead just waiting to be revealed. :)
