Today I turned 35 years old

Today was a big day in my life, I'm officially half-way to 70! I spent some time thinking about where I thought I'd be at 35. I've had a lot of dreams for the first half of my life ever since my teenage years. Here are a few random thoughts about what I thought my life would be like @ 35...
-I thought that I would have more hair
-I thought that I would have more money
-I thought that I would be more mature :)
-I thought that I would marry a hot, godly woman (& I did)
-I thought that I would have 3 kids (& I do, plus 1 & 1 more on the way)
-I thought that I would Pastor a relevant,vibrant & life-changing church (& I do)
-I thought that I would be playing a lot of basketball (not happening, yet)
-I thought that I would weigh less than I do!
-I thought that I would be helping people experience the love of God (& I am)

I look back over the last 35 years and I am thankful that God has allowed virtually all of my dreams to come to pass. I am blessed more than I deserve, seriously!!! God owes me nothing & I'm thankful for everything! I'm currently dreaming for the second half of my life and I've got some absolutely humongous, God-sized dreams. I'm believing for each of them to come to pass in my life! What are you dreaming for God to do in your life?
