I just wrote the invocation for my 35th high school reunion next weekend. I am no preacher, so it's quite an honor to be asked again to lead the crowd in a prayer.
There are many memories to think about, and for some of us in the Horlick Class of '81, it's amazing we are still here! God had to be with us. It's going to be nice to share memories and the "now" we all live in.
As I think of all of our now, many experiences have shaped us. For me, there have been ups and downs. Looking at my life now, it's obvious to me, family and friends that God is with us.
And the reunion gives me the chance to know God is here, because we will be sharing love among us all, and a lot of gratitude. Those are two of the biggest lessons I've learned over the last year. If you look at life with the attitude as interactions are really love being shared, with God shaping them, and with gratitude to God, even in tough times, it changes your life.
Huge blessings to you all. XO
