Eight is Great

I can't believe Faithy is really eight years old. We started this special day having home made Cinnabons for breakfast, then we went to Kids Club at Sonshine Center, then we went to Faithy's favorite, Bigby's, for dinner.

I am Thirty-eight

In the movie City Slickers the character played by Billy Crystal on his thirty-ninth birthday says, "Have you ever had that feeling that this is the best I'm gonna do, this is the best I'm ever gonna feel . . . and it ain't that great?" Henry David Thoreau writes "the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation." I believe that most men have their mid-life crisis at this age because they lack purpose. By God's grace I feel that I will escape this. Obedience to God's will is my purpose. As long as I keep doing that, then there will be no mid-life or late-life crisis. I posted this earlier, but it bears reposting: The one thing is obedience to God's will. Well, now I am off to the Harley-Davidson dealership here in Iloilo to buy my birthday gift . . .
