No, it’s not a big station, it’s a big birthday! I’ve been riding this train for 6 decades now, and there’s still a long way to go. I’m old enough now to not look back. There’s a lot of stuff there that’s best left behind. That’s one of the real joys of being a Christian, you can look ahead. You probably won’t see exactly what’s coming, but you know that something exciting is on the way. That little word ‘hope’ is wonderful, “We have a hope that is steadfast and certain.”

So, the tannoy announces, “The train now arriving at platform 60 is coming in on time and in one piece!” I praise my God daily for good health and the home He has provided for me over the years. He truly is faithful to His own and has been to me since I came to know Him aged 12. Even through the dark times and wilderness years He was always there, even though I didn’t see Him…Wasn’t looking, but He was there none the less.

And so, on to the future, whatever that might hold. One thing I can be sure of, we’ll ride the rails together, my Lord and me, right on to eternity.

To Him be the glory,
Colin. Aged 59 and 9.999 tenths!
