Half-way there and thank you : Day 15 of 31

We’re half-way up the 31 Days mountain and I want to thank you for joining the journey, for sharing, and for subscribing.

I’m a big believer in the value of connecting the dots. I think we underestimate perspective and it’s value to help life make more sense. That’s what this 31 Days thing here is about.

We have another sixteen days of talking directly about what connecting the dots looks like. After that, this place will still be about dot connecting (I don’t know what else to talk about!), but probably not as overt nor every day.

But at the end of 31 Days we still won’t be there.

Because you can’t go all the way to connecting everything. And that’s a dot too: the “Can’t get all the way there” dot.

In church yesterday, this jumped out:

He has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

— Ecclesiastes 3.12

We’re never going to figure it all out. This side of heaven, it will never all make sense.

That’s good, not bad. Amen.

But the journey is fun. Thank you again for being part of it.

    Hi Gary, I just found your blog today and I have read through the first 15 days. I’m really looking forward to taking the rest of the 31 day journey and beyond. A lot of the other bloggers are very young and it’s nice to get the insight of someone with a few more life experiences. Thanks for sharing these insights and experiences. You have a lovely family. Blessings, Julie

  2. I’m embarrassed to admit this but …I sometimes check out the last page of a book to see how it ends. As I was thinking about endings, I realized I already know the end of the most important Book. Jesus wins. He is victorious. I can rest in that Promise.

    I also wanted to tell you that I bought your eBook Scary Hope. I read it while exercising on my treadmill. The time passed so quickly and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
