God's Gift of a Vacation

I am so thankful for God's perfect timing in everything.  Now I am especially thankful for His timing in our vacation in Seal Beach with Cara and her husband, Dan.  It has been an extremely busy summer both at work and at home and we are totally blessed to take a break in such a beautiful place that He has created!  It is wonderful not to have to get up to an alarm everyday, not to have to be anywhere at a specific time...aka no agenda.  Thank you LORD for this gift!  The fellowship, the time together with the LORD, the marveling at God's glorious creation, the fun, the laughter, the talks and especially seeing God move has been a treat for my heart! 

I have had the desire for awhile to not look ahead and to live fully right where I am.  I believe God is granting me that desire.  I'm sure this is because this is the true way He intends me to live!

Laughing At Growing Old!

I, along with many others, have been faced with many physical changes as I am "maturing" and I have made a decision:

I choose to laugh at myself....ALOT!

At work,  I was talking to my boss about my bursitis....BURSITIS! I don't know about you, but when I heard that word as a youngster I thought it was for old people.  Well,  I have it!  LOL

I also have an increase of multiple things:  

grey hair
thinning hair
some memory loss
some hearing loss
age spots
poor vision
aches and pains
decreased sleep
gravity on the face
gravity on the body

BUT,  I can laugh at these temporary weird things happening.  There is no sense in battling against them or not welcoming them....they are present and they are a part of me.  I choose to laugh at myself and enjoy the freedom of being a part of this 50+ club for awhile.  I am thankful that God draws me to focus on the important things, not the things that are aging more rapidly than I am comfortable with.  I am thankful I have a husband that I laugh with almost everyday about the funny things that are going on with us!  

 It's only forgetting yourself that you draw near to God. -Henry David Thoreau
