59 years ago today, I was brought into this fallen world. Like most who came before and after me, my sinful human nature shall never allow me to see the Heaven the Creator of all that is good in the Universe created. But because His only Son suffered, died and was buried for me and then rose, a path and a gate opened for me and all who came before and after me.
My dearest friend, Bill Wegner, likes to say that there are only two types of people in the world:
- Those who are a mess
- And those who are a mess and have been blessed to realize it and embrace it.
Only by the Grace of Almighty God am I here to begin the 59th year of my journey as a mess.
As Christians begin the four most Holy Days of the year and Jews soon celebrate the great gift of Passover, I like to note that I’ve adopted the following song as both my personal and corporate theme song and urge you to listen to the words:
May you join me in making today, the first day of the rest of your life.
