I just got off the beach after a morning run. Well, more of a morning jog. OK, sometimes I walked. And sometimes I stopped to pick up a shell. You get the gist.
With just a few days left in 2009, us and a family we've been friends with for a dozen years have come to Myrtle Beach for a few days of togetherness and relaxation. The winter rates were so good, we're staying in two penthouse suites at a hotel with an indoor water park. It's been such a treat so far.
So while on the beach this morning, my heart kept echoing a prayer for 2010 from Psalm 90:12:
Teach me to number my days aright, that I may gain a heart of wisdom. (NIV)
Teach me to number my days, that I may present to you a heart of wisdom. (NASB)
Teach me to realize the brevity of life, so I may grow in wisdom. (NLT)
I've been mulling this concept for about a month now. I'd love to hear what you think it means or looks like to number our days aright. And what do you think the connection is between doing this and growing in wisdom?
So that's where I'm at both physically and mentally right now as this year draws to a close. I hope that wherever you you are, you are warm, well and looking forward to 2010.
