In two months and seven days, I will celebrate my 50th birthday.  I’m shocked that it is coming so soon.  I remember when the age of 23 seemed ancient, and now I’ve more than doubled that.  As milestone birthdays approach, I reflect back on all that has happened in my life and look forward to the years to come.  More than ever before, I want to use my life strategically to love all I can, influence all I can, and leave a legacy that will outlast my lifetime.   I can’t wait to ponder and share my heart about the aspects that are nearest and dearest to me.   Come visit me for the next 30 days, and together we’ll explore how to live a life that counts!
