P7270001I love this picture that Deb took of the boys when they were younger back in Nor Cal.  This was our first camping trip at 8,000 feet in the Yosemite National Park area.  Now John is headed back to Ozark Christian College for his 4th semester and David is just a few weeks out from graduating from USMC Boot Camp. Several years ago a couple of strangers told me as I was graduating with my MA that I needed to treasure the time with my kids as they would grow up before I knew it. My how they were right.  My two daughters are still at home in High School but I know those days are numbered as well.  In fact, all of our days are numbered.  From time to time I’m taken back to the wise words in the Bible where the psalmist prayed that God would “teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.” Indeed we only have so much time on this good green earth that God created and it’s up to us to make the most out of the days we have been given.  There are just three more days in 2015.  What are you going to do with them?  2016 is right around the corner.  How are you going to make the New Year count?
