Big Day = Good Day

Not always, but today that is the truth.  

I just got home from seeing the new Harry Potter movie with my daughters and one of my son's friends.  My son was out of town and couldn't attend.  This is a tradition with us... we load up and go see the Harry Potter movies.  It was fun.  And in case you are a HP fan, it was a good movie.  

I managed to get out for a run this morning for the first time in two weeks.  I have got to find a way to get my running habit back.  I have a triathlon in 2 weeks and I know I will be able to finish it, but it would have been much better if I had actually trained for it!  

Yesterday, I was sitting in a meeting at my home group.  As I was sharing, I idly looked across the room at the board where birthdays for the month are posted.  It almost took my breath away to see:

Mary G.  25 yrs.

That is next Friday.  If I hadn't been so busy, I am sure I would have made some grander plans for this landmark birthday, but as it is, I haven't.  Fridays are speaker meetings at my 6:30 a.m. meeting, so I am going to be the speaker that day.  That is the only plan I have made.  I would like to get up to the north side of town to my old home group.  Don't know if it is going to happen though.  

Some years I want fireworks and cannons.  Some years I just want to quietly thank God for his incredible mercy and love.  I think this is one of the quiet years.  We shall see... and you know I will keep you all posted.

Good night y'all.  You all know that God loves you so much that he is giving you a golden chance to be sober, right?

I've been holding on to my golden chance for a very long time. Handed to me directly from a loving compassionate God.

It sounds like it is a good day. And well...25 years...what can I say except that I think that is evidence of God in your life.
