Milestone – a landmark, a highlight, a high point, an achievement. Life is full of them. A birth, a graduation, a new job, a marriage, an anniversary… Today marks two milestones in our family.
The first milestone is that today is the one year anniversary of having started my blog. It’s been a great experience. To be honest I had no idea of how it would go, how long it would last, if anyone would even be interested. What a huge adventure it has been!
I am honored by each and every one of you who have shared the journey. Thank you! And I am grateful to God for the opprotunity this has been to draw closer to Him and be stretched towards learning to find Him in the ordinary events of life. I look forward to the adventure that is yet to come.
The other milestone today is Susan celebrating her 50th birthday. As you can imagine she has a mixed bag of emotions about this particular milestone. But I am grateful beyond words to call her my best friend. We have laughed together, cried together, fought with each other and been there for each other. She has made this journey of life a pure delight. Happy Birthday Babe! And thanks for sharing perhaps the greatest adventure of all – marriage!
Life is full of milestones every day that mark our journey through this life. Pause today and reflect on a few of your own. Then thank God for these seemingly ordinary events that serve to make life so precious.
