The main reason I'm writing today is to ask for your participation in either or both of the two upcoming events our family will be a part of. This year, more than ever before, God has pressed on my heart that my life is not about the "here and now" - it's not about getting what I want in my life, achieving the American dream, and living for the temporary things that will fade away. It's not even about having a happy family, good friends, and a successful career. Those goals are not bad, but God's purpose for my life goes way beyond that. It's about making a true, lasting difference for God with His love. Allan and I both feel strongly that this is the kind of perspective we desire to instill in our children: it's about giving, not receiving. It's about serving, not being served. It's about making eternal impact, not gaining temporary satisfaction.
