    Although many consider me to be young, I consider myself to be middle aged at 37, and I’m okay with that (see Psalm 90:10). I love seeing what God is doing among my age group, but I also am concerned by many things I see. Here are some observations and truths from Psalm 71.

    Psalm 71:6 “Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is continually of you.”

    My wife and I have been at war with a force to be reckoned with. This force has kept me up at night, given me nightmares and is making it hard for me to focus on my normal day-to-day activaties. This force is an army of groundhogs.

    We have been infested with groundhogs on our property for several weeks now. This war did not start out as a war. We have a grown-up fence row in our backyard and one spring afternoon in May, I noticed this brown creature running in and out of the fence row while I was mowing the yard and the creature was later identified as a groundhog.
