You see, I have bought my 16 tickets to four games for next year, and though I don't yet know what teams I will be watching battle it out on the field, I can say without a doubt that my excitement is growing by the day, and we're still a full year away from the event. I suppose this excitement is fuelled by the fact that my son and I were able to attend the recent Confederations Cup match at Loftus stadium with the USA vs. Italy. It was a great experience for the two of us to share and believe me, our whole family will be enjoying this calibre of matches next year. But since my little encounter last night with such an important figure, I have begun to reflect on the irony of it all. You see, in reality, Danny Jordaan is just another person going through life, persuing his goals and trying to get what he can from a job he probably enjoy's but also loathes at times. The fact is, he is no different in many ways than any one of us who are out there.
I can honestly say that what gives me greater joy and purpose, is knowing that Jesus Christ is and will always be the most important person in my life. Though I don't meet Him in airports talking on a cell phone, I get to talk with Him and learn from Him anywhere and at anytime and He is always ready to listen. Pretty awesome to think that I don't have to wait till Jesus is done talking on a cell phone, or that I am going to interrupt Him from some important meeting. Instead, it is pretty cool to think that He is always ready and waiting to welcome me into His presence.
Anyways, just thought I'd share a few bits of bit of info that has caused to me to do a double take in the past 24 hours.
