So today’s my birthday… my youth pastor (Yes, MY pastor when I was a teenager.) sent me a video to help celebrate:
I’ve got to be honest… I knew 33 was coming but I didn’t realize it would come so soon. I had a great celebration yesterday with lots of my friends and family from Crosspoint and throughout the community.
It’s was the Cordova Kickball Classic. In my mind the best way to deal with getting older is by playing games that I played when I was younger. We had a great time and I posted some of the pics below:
I have looked forward to many birthdays in the past:
- 13 – teens baby!
- 16 – driving
- 18 – vote
- 20 – no more teens
- 25 – I could rent a car!
- 30 – Finally old enough to be “old enough”
But 33 is different… 33 means “I should know better”. So my goal for 33 is the know and learn the things I should “Know Better”. I want to love God more, I want to serve more, I want to give more, I want to be a better husband, son, friend.
My verses for 33 are:
8 He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.
14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
19My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,
22Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
Lord, help me to make year 33 a year that pleases you and one that impacts my community, my family, and my friends for eternity. Amen.
