Marriage from A to Z

Principles for a Successful Marriage

“Facing The Fabulous 50th”

I used to think that turning 50 meant that you were old and at the end of everything.  I don’t know why I thought that way, but now I realize that was stinking thinking! (smile) Today is my 50th birthday!  I can’t believe my turn has finally come!  God has kept me for an amazing 50 years!

Reaching 50 is a wonderful milestone, and I plan to celebrate everyday this month. I celebrate what God has done in the past 50 years and what He is going to do in the future.   I have been through some ups and some downs, but I am still here!

I must admit that I have had a few mixed emotions about turning 50.  I struggled with should I put it out there or not.  However, I have decided to publicly give God ALL of the glory and ALL of the praise for every year that He has kept me.    There are so many amazing things that God has done, and I have so much to be thankful for.

I thank God for a beautiful marriage, beautiful children, beautiful family/church family and friends.  I especially want to thank each of you for taking the time to read this blog and sharing it with others throughout the years.   I pray that something has been shared to encourage, inspire and to uplift you. I know that God has blessed me to be a blessing!

Since it is always my goal to include scripture in every post, I will close with two of my favorite verses.  I believe that these verses have a lot to do with me facing 50 and feeling fabulous! Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”  Also, Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.”  

Until next week . . .
