the wonderfully BIG

5-zero!

And it already feels GOLDEN!

Am I excited?

Nervous?

Anxious?

Depressed?

Yes, no, no, and a most resounding NO!

Those who know me well

understand this year will be like every other.

Why?

Because I love my birthday!

Why’s that?

It’s my  no-excusal-necessary day,

my polka-dots with stripes day,

my free-pass to be sappy-silly

so that if anyone asks,

“What is up with her??”

“IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!”

is the perfectly-perfect thing to say!

“Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you”

2 Corinthians 13:5

I hope you’ll follow along this week and discover all the

“Things of 50”

I plan to chat about.

Maybe you’ll be inspired to find a

polka-dot or stripe

of your very own

along the way!

  1. Christ indeed lives in us. I look forward to this journey on your blog. My 50th (seems so long ago now) our daughter graduated from Uni and our youngest son left home for uni. It was a memorable year. I hope you will know the fullness of all the day can bring. I am looking forward to your posts.

    1. Amen, Faye! And I applaud how sincerely you show Him to all of us in this blogging-sphere. What an exciting 50th year you were given! I am over-whelmed by my ‘gifted’ list already…baby grand-daughter baptized, daughter married, and in a few short months a 30th Anniversary! Yee-gads, I’m feeling blessed.

    1. Thank you Auntie! I’m quite certain I shall embrace all that is given…except maybe the prickly-stuff, which I’d prefer to ignore for the week. (It will be there waiting for me at the start of next, giggles!) Hope you’ll follow along…Hugs!

    1. Aren’t you the sweetest!! What a delight to have you stroll through my site! (I’m giddy excited.) Our children still talk so very fondly of you and the treasure-trove of memories they have from your very special classroom. Our entire family was blessed to have been given the experience of knowing you those many years. From that first moment you entered our hearts where you reside still today! Hugs & Blessings and please stroll through anytime you are able…I’d love to share this small play-space with you!!
