Don Bouldin tells about a study of a group of aged 95+ adults, all of whom were asked, “If you had life to do over again, what would you do differently?” Their responses fell into three major categories.
What God is calling you to become. What makes life worth living and fulfilling? Family and faith, both of which require hefty doses of forgiveness.
Second, take more risks. Life is very short. Take some risks to accomplish more. Don’t be afraid of failures or mistakes. Why climb out on limbs? Because that’s where the fruit is. No limb-climbing, no fruit-picking.
Third, do more things that will last forever. Invest in eternity. Make this world a better place because you sojourned here. –Bouldin, Ears to Hear, Eyes to See: Witnessing Through Media (Nashville: Broadman, 1987), 81.
Sunday is the Day of Pentecost. It will also be Confirmation Sunday. We will also consecrate our large group of Acolytes that have been trained to be part of our worship service.
It will be a time hear different languages reading the Acts 2:1-21. It will be a time to celebrate what God has done, is doing and what God promises to do.
See you in church this Sunday at 10:30AM. Invite someone and share about God’s mighty deeds of power (Acts 2:11).
Remember: Make memories. Make a difference. Make memories while making a difference.
Blessings from Duncanville,

PS: Next Sunday we celebrate our high school seniors…
