Signs of the Times

My first grandchild was born eight years ago.

My firstborn will be thirty next month.

I'm officially "senior" status in many establishments.

My baby boy is almost twelve.

I've been teaching at CFA for twenty-six (or is it 27) years. (Wonder what kind of retirement that guarantees.)

My parents need my help these days. It used to be the other way around.

My singing is becoming "over the hill" singing. I think most of you know what that means. ;)

My favorite verse today? Because I'm still expectant, still looking ahead, still hope-filled, I will wait on the Lord.
"But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40.31
I'm learning that there is nothing I want to do more than serve Him. I've given my life to that with absolutely no regrets aside from wishing I had done it more faithfully. I'm still discovering, day by day, that there is nothing in this whole wide world more deserving of my love and passion and dedication than Jesus Christ.

A sign of the times? "It is well with my soul."
