33

Old-man-laughing
33 is the largest positive integer that cannot be expressed as a sum of different 
triangular numbers. It is also the smallest odd repdigit that's not prime (unless we consider 1-digit integers to also be repdigits).

It's also my age…as of today.

My 32nd year was not my favorite year, but it may turn out to be my best…because I learned a ton, endured a ton, and lived a ton. 32 was a dog year for me. And so, I give thanks for it. It was the year that the Lord hath made. So, I will rejoice and be glad in it.

Now, I'm glad he hath madeth another year for me. May I honor him in all I do. This year should have some of the same stuff…God, family, church, ministry. It should also bring some cool new stuff… 2 new books coming out this year, finishing the DMin degree (hopefully), and completing my first full year at North County.

Good bye 32, hello 33.


P.S. How long before I look like this guy in the photo? I don't know…but I hope I'm still laughing like him…even if I only have three chiclets left, too.
