Time has a habit of moving past rather quickly even though there are times when it seemingly drags along at a snail’s pace (those are few and far between, fortunately). I have been greatly blessed. I feel wonderful. I have things I am responsible for accomplishing every day. I continue to learn every day, albeit sometimes a day or so too late. There are people to whom I mean something, and there are many who mean much to me. I have a strong faith in God and know that he is Master of me and us. I have a wonderful personal family (including a very loving and forgiving spouse, children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren) and a wonderful church family. I have wonderful friends who tolerate me reasonably well given my curmudgeonly actions upon occasion. I have work to do…some God-directed and some personally directed. And I have a personal blog that allows me to vent and preach, and some writing for others which is very fulfilling.
By the way, that Roman numeral above is some of what I remember from two years of Latin a long, long time ago. Thanks, Mrs. Chase; it was probably as difficult for you as it was for me, but we got through it.
