Moses Has a Walkie-Talkie?
Nine-year-old Kyle was asked by his mother what he had learned at Sunday school.
“Well, mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of Egypt.”
When he got to the Red Sea, he had his engineers build a pontoon bridge and all the people walked across safely.
Then he used his walkie-talkie to radio headquarters for reinforcements. They sent bombers to blow up the bridge and the Israelites were saved.
“Now, Kyle, is that really what your teacher taught you?” his mother asked.
“Well, no. But if I told it the way the teacher did, you’d never believe it!”
This week I will have another birthday, nothing helps you to reevaluate your life than a milestone on the calendar. I knew my birthday was approaching because for the last six months I have been receiving emails about burial plots, death insurance, plastic surgery plans and wrinkle removers. Wow, I didn’t think I was that old and thanks for the reminder! Lol.
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 year 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 teenage 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 am sure God must have a sense of humor, looking down on us. With all the wild and crazy misadventure of life, we are still here.
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. It is hard to believe there were times when I wished everyone would hurry and grow up.
I have news for you; the best is yet to come! ©
Psalm 18:30 (NLT)
God’s way is perfect.
All the Lord’s promises prove true.
He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.
Have a great week!
Thank you for dropping by and sharing your time with me. Do you ever feel too tired and weary you forget to enjoy life? I would love to hear from you.
