“It’s Snowing Move Your Car”
It had been snowing for hours when the announcement came over the intercom.
Will the students who are parked on University Drive please move their cars so that we may begin snow plowing.”.
Twenty minutes later there was another announcement: “Will the twenty-six hundred students who went to move twenty-six cars please return to class.”
Reflections: I Need A New Hair-Do
Last week was my birthday and nothing helps you reevaluate your previous year then a milestone on the calendar. I knew my birthday was approaching because for the last six months I have been receiving the unsolicited email about buying a burial plot, death insurance, plastic surgery plans and wrinkle removers. Wow, I didn’t think I was that old and thanks for the reminder! Lol. But to be honest, each year I think about what can be done to stop the progression. LOl
I remember a few years ago on my birthday I thought I would give myself a new look. Although my hair white now, I thought I would get a color at the drug store and make it a more youthful color. Wrong! I didn’t leave the color on as long as they suggested, however when all was said and done I had dark blue hair. I thought I would just go with the flow and try to act like it was a perfectly normal color me. You know just rock the look! However, my beautiful granddaughter brought me back down to earth when she suggested I add hot pink hairpieces. I think not!
I am 50 + and loving it and my mind has not left me yet, thank goodness. I read a quote the other day that said,” I would rather be a vivacious, confident, and a young at heart 70 years old, then an old 40-year-old.
I thought it was a funny quote until I started remembering when I was 40. Do you remember your 40’s? I was the ranch gopher, cook, mother of 3 teenager daughters, rancher’s wife, hostess, tour guide, chauffeur, and entertainment committee all in one. I never seemed to have enough sleep. My theme song during those days was the Garth Brooks, song, “I’m too young to feel this damn old.” Do you feel like that?
I love the way God is faithful to his promises through all generations. I have relied on them, held tight to them and believed them, all these years. I know they can be trusted because God himself is trustworthy and faithful.©
Isaiah 40: 29-31 NLT
He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
God gave me the privilege of raising our three wonderful daughters. Then He gave me the courage to let them fly the nest, and become the special women that God planned for them to be. I am eternally thankful for His promises that have sustained me all these years.
Thank you, dear friends, for spending your time with me. I love you all and am praying for you this week.
