Another Year

Yesterday I completed another trip around the sun.

Each year at this time, I take a few minutes to reflect quietly on my life.

I wish I could say I was older and wiser. I really wish I could say that I have everything figured out and know what I am doing.

Yet, none of those wishes are reality. I am older, I have learned a few new things, and I thought I would share twelve random lessons from the past year.

-You make time for the things you value.
-Relationships make life more enjoyable.
-God always has a way of surprising you.
-It is easy to caricature and label people, yet everyone is highly complex and unique.
-God’s timing is never our timing.
-Holding onto grudges is pointless and painful.
-All repairs cost at least twice as much and take twice as long as you plan.
-People also have a way of surprising you.
-Everyone has stories that they do not tell for numerous reasons.
-Many people want to serve the Lord; they are just waiting to be asked.
-God made some parts of this planet incredibly beautiful.
-Caring about people can break your heart, but don’t stop caring.
