My Jubilee

The year of Jubilee in both the Jewish and Christian traditions is a time of joy, the year of remission or universal pardon.

“Thou shalt sanctify the fiftieth year,” Leviticus 25:10

Today marks the first day of my jubilee year as I am going to call it. It sounds so much more magical than ‘half a century’ and ‘semi-centennial’, agreed?

Yesterday, I was grousing about stretching myself this year. But now that I understand the essence of the year of the Jubilee I am excited to spend it in joy, savoring my universal pardon and granting forgiveness to my past. I am looking forward to every.single.thing.

I am still going to come up with some stretch goals, but perhaps they will be something different from what I have anticipated. I don’t know, but I look forward to finding out….
