I’m in my 50s. I know, I sound a lot older, don’t I? Seriously though—when I was in college, I thought my life was so difficult. I didn’t have prospects for a steady full-time job. Who would want to marry this messed-up guy? Well, when God provided there, I quickly realized parenting was hard. But in this new phase—it’s just weird. My wife’s parents are both gone. I’m still blessed to have mine, but they’re not getting any younger. And while my brain feels young, my body is rebelling. Cherish your days. As my grandparents used to say, “Enjoy each day. I remember being your age. They go quickly.” Most importantly though, don’t let a day go by without being Jesus to your family. If you don’t, they could be lost forever.
