So much life left to live . . .

I spent the day with an 82 year old, retired pastor & professor. 

A well-respected, important figure in the Christian Academy, who is active in life and a prolific writer to this day.

I am half his age.

The sum total of my life - childhood, teen years, college, graduate work, first jobs, marriage, child-rearing, trying to establish myself professionally - all so much work - is just half of all the life that might be before me.

A delightful thought.

I have so much more time to live - so many more people to meet - so much more to encounter!
