today is my 39th birthday.
geez louise!! how the heck did that happen??
don’t get me wrong, i’m not complaining. it’s a blessing to see another year. another day, period! and i thank the Lord for it and for all that i have in my life.
hey, my milkshake still brings my baby boy to the yard after 8 years of marriage, we have two wonderful children, i have the most awesome parents on the planet, my family is filled with some pretty cool characters… really, i have no complaints.
life has ups & downs & twists & turns & mess that doesn’t go the way you expected it to and expected things that don’t turn out quite the way you wished, but there’s a lesson in it all…a definite take away. for every little disappointment i had in my 38th year, i count it all joy (james 1:2-4).
i choose joy and i plan to rock out my 39th year, which i’ve lovingly dubbed my 40eve.
so here’s to another year, a press of the restart button, a new beginning at a new age…full of possibilities.
