Ready or not ...

... is (almost) here.


I can remember anticipating 1970 with fear and trembling.

And then I'd think about the year 2000,
when I would be two years away from being 50.
I could barely imagine that.
I think I thought I'd be like someone else. 

And I can remember thinking about the age the Beatles sang about - 64 - 
and the word 'elderly' would come to mind.

I'm posting a men's choir singing it ... it's fun (for us old geezers).

And this time next week that is what, when, where I'll be: 64!!!
Ready or not.

And I am liking that!

Who knew I would!?

Well, of course, parts of me do NOT like that... but parts of me so do.

As the old hair color ad used to say,
"You're not getting older.  You're getting better."
And I think I am.

I could elaborate on that but I'll just close with some 'posters' I like
that I've seen on Facebook these last few days.

That's pretty good, huh?

Both of the above 'posters' come from Ginny Murphy.  
Thanks, Ginny!

And there's this...

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.

That is the main one...
and my resolution this year is to memorize more Bible verses.

I have found that when I'm working on Bible verses...
or laughing...
or praying for folks around me
I don't have the time or energy to worry.
And I am free... to be me, who God made me to be.

At my age that is SUPER.
(Well, at any age.)

For today I'm reminiscing about my childhood. I had this fella! (Well, one that looked exactly like him.) I called him "Muncle - li...
