Life Changing Events

Good morning from Daniel Springs church camp. 
Last night the camp pastor spoke on time. As I listened I began to think about the stories my grandparents use to talk about. 

Most of us will remember life changing events – for them it was The Great Depression. 
My grandmother would not toss out a small bowl of purple-hull peas. Things were so bad and food was scarce. 
I heard about the scarcity of jobs and working all day for 50 cents. 
It was there life changing event. 
In my lifetime there have been many things that have changed the way I live and think. 

Man landed on the moon in the late 1960’s. Abortion was made legal in the early 1970’s and same-sex marriage in 2015. 

September 11, 2001 changed all of us and our view of Islam. 
Now I can reminisce about where I lived and went to school. I could talk about friends and places. But above all the dates and events that have transpired in my lifetime, January 15, 1975 sticks out above all. 

That was the day I was born-again by accepting Jesus as my Savior. 
It’s the event I should talk about the most. 

It’s the event I should talk about most with my grandchildren. 

It is the life changing event that I need to tell everyone about. 

It’s the event that my mind should think on the most.
