But those who wait for the LORD [who expect, look for, and hope in Him]
Will gain new strength and renew their power;
They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun];
They will run and not become weary,
They will walk and not grow tired. ~ Isaiah 40:31, AMP
Even to your old age I am He,
And even to your advanced old age I will carry you!
I have made you, and I will carry you;
Be assured I will carry you and I will save you. ~ Isaiah 46:4, AMP
Celebrating my 65th birthday . . . March 6, 2016 . . . .
Grateful to Be 65
It is great to be alive
And grateful to be sixty-five,
Valuing attitude of gratitude,
A spirit full of certitude:
Peace, joy, laughter and love,
Everything amazing to speak of;
Though retired from paid career
Never emeritus in infinite sphere;
Senior with no rainbows to chase,
Compliments of God’s Grace.
Note to Self:
I have learned that the beauty in growing old not only is being able to look forward to each birthday but also is being able to accept each new year of my life’s journey with all of its opportunities, challenges, failures and successes. I must never forget it is God’s Grace that makes it okay for me to expect more in life to celebrate, as long as I remain forever grateful to God for my life and am forever faithful to celebrate the life He has given to me.
