The First 40

April 20, 2011 — 1 Comment

So teach us to number our days
that we may get a heart of wisdom.
– Psalm 90:12

Done. As of yesterday, Yancey Arrington and the 30’s are no more. I’ve officially joined the ‘Over the Hill’ club by turning 40 years old. My wonderful wife surprised me the day before with a party attended by great friends (see above pic). I know some hit their 40th birthday with depression or despair. Mine, gratefully, has seen neither of those feelings. I am grateful to God for all that he has given me and look forward to my fourth decade on this earth. (Even though I could do the 20’s over again ;))

  1. Happy birthday man! I will hit the 30 milestone this year. I’m not sure how I will take it yet.
