this is what twenty-seven looks like
My birthday is really in a couple of weeks, but it’s close. So much of life in the future, still allowed the innocence of inexperience, the freedom of youth.
And what a weight off the shoulders to realize that man, I don’t need to have everything figured out by now. Last night I listened to the stories of a man with at least fifteen years more life under his belt than I as he read 1st Thessalonians 5:23. I understood (again) that wisdom comes with age and experience and that God lets years pass on like rings growing on trees as He teaches and refines.
He does not expect a sapling to be as strong, its roots so deep as a sequoia as old as General Sherman. And praise Him for that, really.
