“Therefore, I say to you, the Kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that will produce its fruit.” When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they knew that he was speaking about them. And although they were attempting to arrest him, they feared the crowds, for they regarded him as a profit. Mt 21:45-46
I have made thirty-five continuous revelations around the sun. Today is day 365 of this trip. I can honestly say I have done many things in those trips. I have been through some really big highs, and I have seen the very pits of despair that this world has to offer. Through all of those trips, I can say that I have been blessed.
My birthday falls in the middle of Lent every year. No matter if it is an early Easter, like this year, or if it is later, no matter what, counting back 40 days from Easter, February 27th, always ends up within the Lenten Season. It is not a bad thing, not at all. Up until the last couple of years, I didn’t even realize it. I was not really practicing the true parts of my faith. I still am just an ok. Catholic, but back then, I was more of a Obligation Day Catholic.
What I really do not want to happen is for my next thirty-five years to be spent wondering where it all has gone. I want to make it a more memorable journey than the last thirty-five. I am not saying the last thirty-five have been all for not. I am saying that I want to learn to appreciate the next thirty-five more. To be able to see the blessings in the moment, not only look back and have the, oh yeah moments. I want to bear more fruits in my life, and not just live my life.
