Today I’m 37 years old!

When I show up to speak at conferences, people who have never met me except via audio or books always think I’m much older than I am.  I’m never sure if that’s a good thing or not!

Hopefully when I’m 87 people will think I’m younger than I am!

On Wednesday, Kelley and I celebrated my birthday (even though my grandmother used to say it was bad luck to celebrate a birthday early).  She planned a ‘birthday in NYC’ for me, which include a visit to the Top of the Rock, lunch at Hill Country and then a taping of the David Letterman Show.  It was a great day!

Tonight Alexander and I will celebrate together by sharing a cupcake!

If the next 37 years are anything like the last, I’ve got a lot to be thankful for!

With gratitude to God,
