Today, Jason celebrates his 29th Birthday! His last birthday as a single man and the final year of his roaring twenties. I believe that the guy who started out at 20 evolved along the way and made his way to 29 aging quite gracefully (do rock stars age gracefully? hmm... maybe not Keith Richards :p)
I never knew the Jason who started his 20-year-old life, but I did get to know him mid-way and watch him become the man he is today. And I like what I see. :)
His dreams, his passion and his whole being has grown over time and I'm grateful for the friendship we have that has brought us this far. I thank God for sending me a friend like him and as many of you know, Jason's a very loyal friend and one who'd go to great lengths for you.
I love that he's passionate about God and serving Him and I hope some of that has rubbed off on me too. I know that The Big Guy is still at work in him and he is still being moulded but I believe his journey will be amazing.
So Jason, as you celebrate today and look back upon your life, do know that despite all the ups and downs and rough patches that LIFE has brought you through, there has always been a bright side, there has always been sunshine after the storm and there has always been much Love surrounding you.
As you embrace 29, I hope you still continue to dream big and have hope for better things to come. Do know that you are deeply and greatly LOVED.
