This past month I celebrated my birthday abroad for the third time. I turned twenty while I was in Italy and now twenty-three and twenty-four while in Belize. Really something crazy, eh?
But this time it wasn’t about adding another year to the palette of interesting travels or even concocting creative goals to achieve within certain age parameters. This day rather was spent in conversation with God about how I am to live radically for Him.
And to all of you who are around this age – heck maybe some of you are at this golden number – the world is going to tell you either to live it up now or to set your life in such a way that you’re to achieve all the sparkles and bells by the age of forty.
