My birthday

Tomorrow I am 66 years old. 20 years ago that seemed ancient. Today it doesn’t seem that old. I am planning on Pastoring another 10 years and praying that they are more productive than the previous 38. I am planning on doing an Iron Man Triathlon in November. I would have never considered that even 5 years ago.  I have way more health issues than 5 years ago but they seem to have made me more determined to make every minute of my life count. I totally depend on Christ, but that doesn’t mean that I will not work as hard as I can, set big goals, plan, learn new skills, manage well every minute of my life, and push myself a bit further than I thought I could go. The Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15 ” I labored even more than all of them yet not I but the grace of God with me”. That is something that I would like to be able to say at the end of my life, ” I worked harder than all of them”!  I think I will make that my ambition for the next 10 years of my life.

    OK, Now I am inspired to work harder. So then you will have to work harder, then I will have to work harder so… we can encourage each other and it is all still by the grace of God. Your friend, Wayne
