I’m about 10 days removed from my 10-year high school reunion. Yeah, I’m getting old.
We had the festivities last weekend. It was a three-event reunion: 1) Football game on Friday night against Dorman – we lost, 2) Buffet at the lake, and 3) hangout at Sports Break.
OG and I attended 2 out of 3, you can take your shot at which two we attended.
Sunday mornings get here early ;).
OG and I actually DJ’ed the lake party, but he was pretty much the only one dancing. Go figure.
It was great getting to catch up with friends from high school. Some people haven’t changed a bit (that can be good or bad), and some people have changed a lot (that can also be good or bad).
It caused me to think a lot about what I had been up to in the last ten years of my life. I had plenty of discussions with friends about the same thing. What is interesting about high school reunions is that they cause you to do some self-reflection.
It causes you to look back over what you could be proud of, what you are ashamed of, what you feel like you wasted time in the last ten years. It makes you think of how you would live high school differently if you had another shot. And it makes you realize that you might have another ten years before you see these people – by that time, what do you want to have said for yourself?
I know I have different age people reading this blog. Some of you haven’t graduated from high school yet. Some of you struggle in remembering the name of your high school. Wherever you are, this is a good reminder to quote one of my favorite lyrics from Jon Foreman: “This is your life, are you who you want to be?”
Are you satisfied with your life right now? Do you need to get rid of something that is weighing you down? Do you need to get right with Jesus? Do you need to forgive someone? Do you need to redeem the time?
This is your life, reunions are coming – even if you skip them. But what do you need to fix today that could change your life? Don’t wait. Tomorrow is not promised, and there’s always a reunion of some sort around the corner.
