I have been in 49 States. Someday I will make it to Alaska for my 50th State. I have lived all over the United States: California, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, New York, North Carolina and Florida.
I love to look at a map and then visualize what it is like. Every Saturday, Margaret and I go on an adventure. We’ve done it almost every Saturday since I have been retired. Wherever we have lived, we have seen more than most people who have lived there all there lives.
I also loved the adventure of being a church planter. The adventure of going out and finding people who would come to a new church. I love the adventure of finding a new Starbucks and meeting new people.
I love the adventure of being retired and the adventure of writing. I love today the adventure of going out and buying a new car. I love the adventure of being a Dodgers’ fan. And that over these 60 some years has truly been an adventure.
I love the adventure of family. Of watching what God is doing through, Margaret, my wife, Brett, my son and his family and Stef, my daughter and her family. I love watching my granddaughters grow up. I'm even going to watch my oldest granddaughter, Ashlyn tonight on Girl Meets World. It is on the Disney Channel.
I could go on but that is enough about me.
What about you?
