The only wish bigger than becoming a parent is to become a good one.

Jeff,

Your words are taking me back 20+ years ago. I remember in chapel in college a speaker talking about life being from point A to point B. Point A is birth and point B is death, and life is the journey between the two. He then took it from an mathematical perspective – life is like a continuous function (keeps going), not a single point or a step function (leaving gaps). His whole point to make is that we are on this continuous journey – our actions aren’t meant to be terminal in nature. Once we have done a task, we aren’t done with ever doing another task. Likewise, just because we have reached a milestone, like a college degree, doesn’t mean we are done learning. His last point was deeper theologically – once we ask Jesus in our hearts, it doesn’t mean we are done having to live the life of a Christian. It isn’t a check-off on our list of things to do…it is a forever journey until we meet Him.

Thanks for allowing me to relive that memory!

Bob
