Another birthday? :) That's right folks, the Lord was doubly good to the world in that November of 1980. Today I want to take a moment and celebrate the birthday of my dear friend Blake. Blake and I have an interesting friendship-- I am never sure whether we are similar or different. I use the term "iron sharpening iron" often in reference to him because through we agree on little, in our conversations I always feel respected and listened to, and ultimately better for it. Plus he's one of the funnest and kindest people I know. So happy birthday Blake! May God grant you direction and wisdom as you make your plans for the future!
