Wow. Hard to believe, but today I turn 65. I don’t feel 65. Well, some parts of me feel 65, but most of me doesn’t. Age isn’t just a matter of a number, but reflects experiences, aches, and opportunities taken or squandered.
Don’t get me wrong — I thank the Lord every day for what He allows me to do. I teach theology in a fine Evangelical seminary, I get to preach in my local church as well as other places, and I get to write everything from my daily blog to articles to books.
I love sports and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed playing tennis with guys, many of whom are 1/2 my age. Occasionally, the teams I play on do well and “go to State.” I sincerely appreciate the guys I get to play with, some who are still “on the way” to faith in Christ.
The Lord has been so gracious to me with my family. My dear wife of almost 44 years, my two children, our four grandchildren — surely, as Psalm 16:6 says, “The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.”
For those of you who read my blog, let me say “Thank you!” I enjoy writing my blog and deeply appreciate those of you what follow it.
Would you consider praying for me today — that the Lord in His grace would give me many more years to serve Him? Thank you. And if you could post a comment or two on my blog occasionally, it would be a great encouragement to this old man!
