>Birthday Reflections

>So it’s yet another birthday for me. “Older than dirt” would seem to apply…but as I jogged this morning I knew I’m in better shape now than I was in my 20s and 30s; and, regardless, our times are in His hands. As a plaque in my office reads, “Age is mind over matter; if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

I heard something the other day that is worth contemplating…”If you didn’t know how old you were, how old would you think you were?”  In my case, mid – thirties…sometimes younger!

I know a lot of crabby teenagers…crabby 20 and 30 somethings…and some young-thinking 70-80 year olds.

Attitude determines actions which determine accomplishments.

So, yeah, I’m another year/day/hour/minute/second closer to heaven…but so are you!

Here’s a few shots of my biggest blessings: Dad, Jacob, Janelle on log ride at Silver Dollar City last week;
 Jane, Jacob, Janelle at Sight&Sound in Branson, Mo; Josiah and Joel at our new above ground pool (what a hassle to put up…thanks to Randy Rogers for helping); Janelle and Jacob in front of Sight & Sound (where we saw Noah production last week…phenomenal); Joel (left) photographing a wedding in Wisconsin over the weekend; Mom and Jacob enjoying the (ice cold) pool!

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
