20 years

This afternoon I had an appointment with a new doctor, and when I walked in the woman at the front desk looked kind of puzzled. It appears that someone put the wrong birth year into the computer when they were setting up my profile. Instead of the 17 year old that she was expecting, I walked in. We quickly got that straightened out, but that brought up the question, "Do you wish you were 17 again?" As I thought about it, I realized that I wouldn't trade the last 20 years in for anything. 20 years ago I was a senior in high school, and I thought that I knew what life was about. But, 20 years later I'm learning that life is still unfolding, and I'm happy to be on the journey. It's like Jason Mraz says in his song "Life is Wonderful", "It takes no time to fall in love, but it takes years to know what love is." I'm still learning about life, love, and other things and I hope that doesn't stop anytime soon.

Good stuff bro - God's word never returns void. Get it out there - you have a gift. I can't wait to read what He speaks thru you.
