It’s always a good time for reflection and dreaming about what is ahead. There are a few things I want to see ahead in my own life, especially this year.
1. Reflect more. Spend more time reflecting on the day.
2. Dream more. We have a special silent retreat coming up, then our church has a missions trip. These are huge opportunities where God can do something spectacular. It is time to dream bigger.
3. Keep on laughing. This is a time of my life I thoroughly enjoy. Our youngest is a senior in high school and seeing God do great things in his life. Our other two sons are in college. We have a daughter-in-law. It’s just a very nice spot in our lives. I want to keep on laughing and enjoying the journey. There are tough times, without a doubt, but I want to keep my in perspective.
In all things, the most important thing is to keep our eyes glued to the Author and Finisher of our faith.
And for today… I enjoy one last day off, spend some special time with family, and get back into the swing of things tomorrow.
