Turning 50 tomorrow

In two hours at 3:20 a.m. 
I will be alive exactly half a century
Mercy my birth weight was 
9 pounds 11 ounces!

Steve has offered me a bucket list item
A hot air balloon ride!
He said "whats money for but to spend it sometimes?"
With IVIG on Saturday we have to wait, probably next weekend.

HE got a Wii fit for me last week. It is fun, even told me I was 47 today when I did my test for balance. Can't beat that. I even whopped it up a bit. Thank you all for the sweet support and cheers for my daughter. These kids are such a blessing. Dash's teacher has requested that I come and do a painting demonstration on Monday. It is the first time all year in a class room. My immune levels will be high enough to sustain a short visit. It will do Dash's heart so good. Mine too.
It is hard to stay up so late, at least in the morning it will have proven to be so. Better go to bed. 50 is just too old to stay up till 3:30 in the morning! HA!

• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
