~John C. Maxwell
"Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort."
This is the time of year when graduating ceremonies begin to take place. I wish to extend my congratulations to all who have reached a certain milestone marker in life. I have been to pre-k graduations, kindergarten graduations, elementary school graduations, high school graduations, nursing school pinning ceremonies, and college graduations. I will add a new one this year. I cannot recall ever having attended a junior college graduation ceremony, but that will soon change. Our son graduates tomorrow with his associates degree from Laramie County Community College here in Cheyenne. I give him a special tip of the hat for his academic accomplishments. I know how thrilled he will be to have a break from the routine of doing homework constantly.
As I ponder my own life journey, I am simply amazed at what has transpired. I could never have imagined at the time of my college graduation the trajectory life has taken. It has been quite the ride. It is also exciting that new adventures are still coming. Life is good.
Graduates--enjoy your accomplishments. Pray for God's guidance as you make life decisions. Let the Lord lead you. You will be amazed at what lies in store for you.
