Today is my 57th birthday. So I am planning to trust, live, and serve in a more intentional way.
First, I will continue to trust that Jesus has a purpose and plan for my life as his child. I am called to pastor Resurrection Lutheran Church and I trust God is the author of that call. I also continue to trust in the sinner/saints of this wonderful congregation.
I live as child of God. Later today I plan to ride my new bicycle for the first time. Playing is part of living.
I serve. This morning, my mother and I will go to her lawyer to make some minor adjustments to the Durable Power of Attorney papers that I have for her care. She brought me into the world so the least I can do is make sure she is cared for as she lives with dementia.
Trust Live Serve. A good way to celebrate life as one of God’s children.
