I wasn't going to do "Five Minute Friday" (writing freely without worrying about editing or perfection for five minutes)  this week ~ wasn't in the mood.

I saw the word for the week, and decided to go for it.  Why?

Because, I had my birthday this week, and as we mark time here on earth, I am now officially a year OLDER.

I'm on the down-hill slope of life here on earth now.

I regret the time and years I've squandered, but rest that there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus, and that He will restore the years the locust has eaten.  Hallelujah!

I like being older (the alternative would mean I am not here), and I want to be here for my children.  Lord willing, I will continue getting older.

And while I am getting older, may I be getting WISER ~ in order to bear fruit and glorify Him.


  1. we mark time here on earth, love the way you said this, made me think that perhaps we shouldn't care so much about keeping track of our age, does it really matter in the end?

  2. Happy Belated birthday... and may your days be blessed as you seek to redeem them for our Savior. Thanks for sharing this week!

  3. Happy Happy Birthday Dear One!!!!!

    LOVE to death that picture of you and your daughters!!! You are beautiful inside and out!
    Love and Hugs

  4. My first time visiting your blog and saw this pic of you and your daughters, I miss mine so much. She's on the West coast, while I'm on the East coast and we don't see each other as often as I'd like. I'm an empty nester too, and am in my 50's. I just had my b'day on Aug. 31. So we probably have some things in common. I love the Lord and my family. Many blessings to you! My blog is:
    Garden of Secrets
