Plans for 2018

As we contemplate our wishes for 2018 let’s sharpen our focus.

I was recently mesmerized by the focus of my grandson at a football game.  He was handed the ball, tucked it under his elbow, his feet began to gobble up the turf through  and past people.  He looked only ahead with  intensity I’d never seen doing household chores or homework.


He was living Philippians 3, ”This one thing I do.”  He literally jumped over more players on the goal line– There was no stopping Albert.


In times of change, its easy to get distracted.  We question our faith,  who and what we trust.  Remember,This one thing I do.”  Finishing well, the touch down, hearing “Well done.”


That my friend, during changing times, keeps me focused.   “This one thing I do.”
