Another trip around the Sun!

I’ve seen a lot of life over the past several years.

Travel.

College.

Marriage.

Market crashes.

Miscarriage.

Children.

Career changes.

Relocation. (A LOT of relocation)

Loss.

Laughter.

Change seems inevitable. They say the only two constants in life are death and taxes, but I disagree; God is the only true constant. Whether we follow Him or refuse to acknowledge Him, He is still present at all times and in all ages.

In all the vicissitudes of life—every mountain-top moment and every lonely valley—God has been my constant helper. His presence has comforted me; His grace has covered me; His love has guarded me.

If I have learned anything, it is that we should live with an eternal perspective. If we seek happiness in this life only, we will miss the eternal prize.

Paul, by inspiration, says it best:

“But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.”

‭‭Acts‬ ‭20:24‬ ‭ESV‬‬

And in 2 Corinthians:

“So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”

‭‭

2 Corinthians‬ ‭4:16-18‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Dear friends and family, I am so thankful to have you in my life. I thank God for bringing your encouragement and teaching, your kindness and counsel. I am thankful too, for the dear brothers who taught me and loved me in my younger years, who are now at home with Jesus.

May you be blessed to be renewed day by day for the eternal joy awaiting us in heaven.
