Reflections

Earlier this week a friend posted 42 reflections on his life.  It motivated me to do the same.  He’s about twice my age, so I did 21 reflections!

  1. I feel like I’m learning and growing more in the past year or two than in all of my adult life.
  2. As I approach my 40th birthday next year, I am becoming more and more content with who God created me to be.
  3. I have the best wife in the world. She is truly a gift from the Lord. She makes me want to be more like Jesus every day.
  4. Hearing my kids laugh is second only to hearing my wife laugh.
  5. I love being a Dad.
  6. Spending one on one time with each of my children is a joy for me. I know the years go by quickly, so I want to make the most of the time.
  7. I love teaching God’s Word to people. Sharing what I have learned with others is a joy!
  8. I see more and more the value of an encouraging word in someone’s day.
  9. My wife and I try have meaningful conversations with strangers every day.
  10. I am an introvert. It doesn’t mean I don’t like being around people, but it means I get energized when I am alone. I realize many pastors are like this.
  11. I have never liked cheese. Recently I have discovered that it is only yellow cheeses I don’t like.
  12. I don’t read as often as I would like.
  13. I love a good movie, but must have popcorn to really enjoy it.
  14. I had cataract surgery when I was 2, my pupils dilate very slowly. I am not a good driver at night.
  15. I often take a long time to make a decision, but when I am certain of it, I move forward quickly.
  16. The Cubs were my favorite team as a kid. I was hoping they’d make the World Series this year, having nothing to do with Back to the Future 2.
  17. I learned how to do a 1 ½ front flip off of a diving board when I was 12. I can still do that trick.
  18. I taught myself to juggle when I was in college. I was bored.
  19. I have 1 son who looks like me, 1 son who acts like me, and the 3rd is quite the mix.
  20. God is always good, no matter your situation.
  21. I look forward to the future.
