Number 44

On this day in 1963 William Whyte Ritchie ventured into this world. I discovered today through the Internet that I share a birthday with Albert Einstien, not bad company eh? Also the actor Michael Caine.

It still blows my mind that I can sit in Starbucks with my morning coffee catch up with events in some great churches from half way around the world and access information using something called Google. Much has changed in the world in 44 years. I still remember at the age of 11 at school when the computer coming to school was a big event. It came for just a few days and covered nearly half a classroom. We spent the week leading up to it filling in cards to give the computer instructions so it could understand it and complete a very simple arithmetic equation. Now I carry around a little box capable of things that were inconceivable then.

Time passes so quickly and things change daily. Its good to know that I have a relationship with a God that does not change. The Bible says he is the same yesterday, today and forever. His love for me and mankind never changes. His longing for relationship with His creation never changes.

Today I am a bit older and hopefully a bit wiser. 44 sounds good. Excited to see what God has in store for me till I reach 45.
