It’s the night before my 33rd birthday. Some have asked me what I’d like as a gift, but it’s hard to answer that question. Understand, it’s easy to list things I want, but I already have everything that makes a heart and a life full. When I turn 33 I will have a beautiful wife, two beautiful boys, a wonderful family, a loving God, and another day to savor and live in the gift that it all is. When happy birthday is sung, it is the happiest birthday. When I blow out the candles on the cake, every wish has already come true.
Then, there is that mysterious way that God can take something that’s full and add even more to it. I look forward to this next year, and all that God has in store.
