June has always been a special month for me. I was born in June, so I’ll be turning 79 this year. My second grandson was also born in June and will graduate from college this year. In a little more than a week, our daughter and son in law will be coming to Minneapolis from S. Carolina to help our granddaughter celebrate her graduation from high school. My sister from Nashville will be here the week after to spend some quality time with us. To top it all off, Father’s Day occurs during this month so we can honor those men who help perpetuate the human race as well as serve as spiritual leaders in the family.
Oh, yes, I will be performing before a live audience with my friends from “Jewels of Denial.”” This production is being presented as an old radio series, so us old fogies can cheat and use a script. The sketch this time is called “Technical Difficulties,” and shows the forced education of the elderly into the world of cyber space. It’s truly not a pretty sight, but makes for some hilarious conversation.
By the end of June I’ll be all excited out, but in the meantime, I can’t wait. There are so many times we can’t wait. We can’t wait for nicer weather – we don’t like having to wait for answers to a health problem – we grow impatient, get frustrated and sometimes even give up when we have to wait. Is today a day of waiting for you? If it is, remember that God’s timing is always good and He certainly knows what lies around the corner for each one of us. He planned our very existence before our conception. He has also promised us a future here on earth as well as in our lives after death – where every day will be filled with joy and excitement, along with fulfilled promises. I can’t wait!
