Sometimes in the hurry of the present we often forget how far we’ve come. That’s why milestones to mark those special times on the way are so important. A birthday, an anniversary, the first date, the first car, the death of a loved one; these significant events mark out key points of our story, the incidents that have shaped our character for good or ill. Commemorating milestones are not nostalgic reminiscences yearning for yesterday but key signposts to share pointing out what helps or hinders progress; learning the lessons of our-story to lighten the path for the future.
Remember every road that GOD led you on for those forty years in the wilderness, pushing you to your limits, testing you so that he would know what you were made of, whether you would keep his commandments or not. (Deuteronomy 8:2)
