Mini Golfing…Taking in the Time that We Have…

What is the purpose of life? What is the purpose of this blog? I know the answer to both but at times they do creep up on me and leave me deep in thought. Today was one of those days that I would consider picture perfect. I had today off, off from school, from work, from for the most part worry. Jenn and I had the great opportunity to just spend time with each other something that has brought us a lot closer together over the past few weeks. We went to Castle Park to play Miniature Golf and what an amazing experience that turned out to be. Although at the time it was just a lot of fun, when we sat back in the car and talked about it, it was blissful. It was an experience that is so simple and yet it profoundly made what was a normal day off into an extraordinary one.
Why do I mention this? Well if a few days time won't be as plentiful. The moments I get to spend with Jenn now I need to cherish as they will be much harder to come by in the next few days. We are going to different schools, different schedules, and for a lot of the day separate lives. And I want to make sure that when we get into the middle of this all we have this post to look back and remember the amazing Tuesday we shared together.

Having a break from both school and work has really helped me take a deep breath and remember that not only am I the luckiest guy in the world to have Jenn in my life but I also am so fortunate to have a job and live in such an amazing country that we live in. I know I for one take it for granted all that things the Lord has blessed me with and I need to remember that even when things do get rough which eventually they are bound to do.

Although Thursday will be my last official day off from school and today my last from work, I must say that through thick and thin what started out as a high school crush turned out to be an eternal love that I am so happy to be able to share with Jenn. May you all have a blessed day and just an amazing 2007.

So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today. Matthew 6:34 NLT
