“Let’s live this day well.”
Twenty-two years ago, during my cancer battle, Becky and I developed a shorter-term approach to life. When you believe your days are numbered, you determine to make them count. As our young family navigated an uncertain path, we began to live bolder, love stronger, and laugh more.
Somehow, life grew complicated and our “this day” focus disappeared. The folder labelled “Someday” grew thick.
One day not long ago, someday lost its welcome. We longed to live bolder once again, so we emptied someday into today.
I will soon start as part-time team development pastor for the church we attend and love for all the right reasons, and I’ll consult for select nonprofits. This schedule allows generous time to write (finally!). Becky will continue coordinating volunteers for an amazing local outreach agency and will facilitate team training experiences for clients across the country. Together, we will develop parenting workshops.
And once again live, love, and laugh like never before.
You’re invited, online or in-person; I preach Sunday (July 17) at 9:30 and 11 a.m. https://weareportcity.com/
