Good Day, Good Year

November 21, 2008

Today was a good day. It was weird at times, but very good overall. I turned the big 28 today. (why do we say big before any number??? seriously, think about it. the big 15, the big 21, the big 25) 

Anyways, the day started off with a trip to House of Refuge with my buddy Joel. We did some odd jobs around the place and helped some nice old ladies with some boxes. It was cool being there and getting to know more about the campus. 

Then I went to BJ’s to enjoy my favorite beer, Piranha Pale Ale. It’s good stuff and I figured that it was my b-day, so I was going to enjoy a yummy beer. Then I went to Krispy Kreme and got a free half dozen donuts. I am not really big on donuts, but they were free. Then I made my way over to Joe’s BBQ in Gilbert for my free birthday lunch. It was delicious! After that I went to my parents house and hung out with my old man and my bro. I beat my bro in ping pong a ton, well maybe not a ton. After that we all went out to dinner at Texas Roadhouse. That was also delicious. 

Good Day. I got a tickets to the Suns game tomorrow night, which I am stoked about. I got Rob Bell’s new book, Jesus Wants to Save the Christians, gift cards to Dillards, starbucks, and Barnes & Noble, and 2 new shirts!! Way more than I deserved or needed, but Awesome! 

The last year of my life has been good. I feel like my marriage is stronger now than ever. I have learned so much in school. I have experienced some major ministry highs and lows. I have made some new friends. I have kept in touch with old friends. I went to Europe and had an amazing time. 

In the next year I know that there are going to be some big things happening. Changes. We hope to start a family! I know, it’s crazy! I am not sure that I am ready to be a Dad, but who is? I am most excited about getting to know my Lord on a more intimate level. I hope that I can look back on 28 and say that I fell more in love with Jesus. That is really what I want my life to be about. Jesus. 

Cheers to 28  

(crap, I am now officially in my late 20’s)
