We are at the cusp of a brand new year, 2018. Its a time of reflection on the events of 2017, and a time of celebration of a fresh new start in a brand new year. As we each look back at everything we lived through this year, we are full of hope and gratitude. Some may be hoping for a far better year ahead. We often take the time in the new year to make promises of self-improvements and create resolutions that we hope will last through the end of January. Even possibly to the first fruits of spring. This time is good for the soul and refreshing for the spirit.

It only gets better…

By: Scott Taylor

After all, that’s what the pastor told me.  He said it plain as day.  “Scott, it only gets better.” 

 

I’m not sure I believe him.

 

After all, my daughter was sitting in my lap gazing at our little Christmas tree with all the wonder that an 18 month-old soul can inspire.  How can it get better than this?  Next year, will she have time for such wonder?  Will I?

I have always loved a good surprise!

You know the kind I’m talking about — the kind that no one sees coming, but one that has the power to turn a good day into a great day. The kind that catches you off guard and changes your course of direction or thinking. 

Of course, seated right beside Surprise is her nearest relative — my sworn enemy: Anticipation.

In 2012, I began to wonder if God was calling me into seminary.

Wait -- let me rephrase that: in 2012 I was losing my mind and freaking out because I had this ridiculous, crazy, and very-much-unwanted idea that God might be calling me into seminary.
