26 Days To Live, May 8

Today's Verse- 2 Timothy 1:7, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline."

Today I turned 34 years old. It never ceases to amaze me how the years continue to go by. I am a very blessed man and thankful for all that God has given to me. This year has been a roller coaster with both highs and lows and the unexpected. Today was much like that. I woke up to my wife being sick, my son's Carter and Colby being sick and a whole lot to do before tomorrow. I had a dentist appointment this morning. I had my teeth cleaned for the first time in awhile, now I remember why I have been avoiding it. Anyway, it was not how I planned for today to go but it's been a good day. That's life isn't it? The issues of life can be obstacles or opportunities depending on how you view them. Today I had some great opportunities to take care of my family. I'm really thankful that God has given me 34 years on this earth and I can only hope that he'll give me 34 more to live for him. If I had 26 days to live I would do what I've been doing all day long, how about you?
