Class of 87

25 years ago this month, I graduated from Metro Christian Academy in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  It seems like only yesterday I was attending prom with a certain young lady, not a clue what the future would hold.  How quickly things change.  Now I am over 40, with two kids, a wife and a second career.   Sometimes I am amazed at how fast time passes.  I really can't believe it has been 25 years.

And to think, 25 years from now I will be in my sixty's, watching my own kids raise their families.  Our time on earth is really but for a moment.  I don't think we fully comprehend the speed at which life travels, I know I don't.  As we get older, reflecting back on life can lead to frustration, depression and regret.  It is easy to get caught up in what we have lost, or will someday lose.  But is this the way God wants us to live? 

Over the past 25 years I have had the wonderful privilege of touching the lives of many people, and to have even more touch my life.  You and I are not guaranteed another 25 years, any more than we are guaranteed another day.  God allows us, compels us, to live each day to its fullest, glorifying Him and making a difference.  God is not finished with me yet, so today I will "press on", knowing that His plan and purpose is what gives me ultimate happiness and peace, in this life and the next.

Colossians 3:23-24, "Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will recieve the reward of the inheritance.  It is the Lord Christ whom you serve."
