Another Major Milestone passed!

Today I reached 70 years of age. It seemed inconceivable to me to live that long when the Japanese ruined my second birthday party by attacking Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the “date which will live in infamy”(FDR). Yet now I feel so blessed to be in robust health and financial security with a happy family life with 45 years married to my best friend. Two achieving children and two beautiful grandchildren– all close. I look back on 40 years of family business success, 33 years of teaching over 10,000 college students, travels in over 70 countries and wonderful friends and associates. My faith grows more meaningful every day. What more could a person want? Last month in Phoenix at a conference with Bruce Wilkinson at the Biltmore, a prominent speaker(next-door neighbor of Paul Harvey) cornered my wife and me, saying “I have been watching you two all week, and I feel compelled to tell you that I feel that your next ten years are going to be the best years of your life.” I’m taking that to the bank. We’re just getting started. As my kids say, “70 is the new 50.” The poet excites me when I read, “Grow old along with me/ The best is yet to be/ The last of life for which the first was made.” Join us. It’s going to be great!
