Pop Pop Epistle #48 – About December 17, 2011
Today is a day to celebrate!
It was 7 years ago today that Nona, Christy (aka Mom, aka Aunt), and I were involved in a pretty bad accident in India. Pretty bad in the sense that we are all “lucky” to be alive. The accident itself has been blogged about elsewhere (HERE and HERE and HERE) so I won’t spent time going over the details here – I will just say again that today is a day to celebrate!
We celebrate that we were around to see…
- Tucker and Danielle get married.
- Scott and Mary get married.
- Grayson’s birth
- Bowen’s birth
- Keller’s birth
- Miller’s birth
- Asher’s birth
- Audrey’s birth
We celebrate 7 more years of ministry with our awesome Ridgecrest Baptist Church family.
We celebrate never to be forgotten memories made in Italy, Switzerland, Poland, The Czech Republic, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Estonia, Russia, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark.
We celebrate 7 more years that Nona and I have been able to enjoy together (37 and counting).
We celebrate generally good health at our ripe old age of 60 – with just a few minor repercussions from the accident.
We celebrate Nona’s retirement and the opportunities this gives her to invest in your lives.
We celebrate and treasure all those moments that we have been able to spend with you.
And we celebrate God’s faithfulness to us in many many ways – none greater than the opportunity to abide in His immeasurably great love for us expressed through His kindness to us in Christ Jesus our Lord.
So we do indeed have much to celebrate – and we anticipate that this list will only grow longer in the years to come as the Lord fuels us with life.
As you read this, take a minute and celebrate the goodness of God in your life and as you do…
Never ever forget that you are very loved!
