My birthday falls on the 8th of January, but my spiritual birthday is the 4th of March, 1974. This year it came and went, and to be honest, I didn't give it a lot of thought. A week later, we were celebrating my wife Debbie's birthday and I was thinking back to the day that we first met - the 4th of March, 1974. When I did the math, I remembered that it had been 40 years since I was born again and on the same day, met my future wife. Little did we imagine that we would be married a year later, and 7 years after that, be going to the mission field in Mexico where we've been ever since.
"We who live in this nervous age would be wise to meditate on our lives and our days long and often before the face of God and on the edge of eternity. For we are made for eternity as certainly as we are made for a time - this time, and as responsible moral beings we must deal with both." - A.W. Tozer
"Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." - Psalm 90:12
"Oh blind world, if thou wert wise, thou wouldst amend thy line of action, and begin to think of the hereafter too; for, brethren, the hereafter will soon be here." - Spurgeon
