Next month I will celebrate my 80 th birthday! Now, that I really can’t believe!
Only those who have stood where I am can really understand the impact of the thought of it.
However, I have some very positive thoughts about it. You might ask, “What are they?”. Well, since you asked, I cannot think of any negative that’s worth talking about.
I had a wonderful place to grow up in, a very stable home. I was given the opportunity to pursue a full education. I grew up in a church family. Married a beautiful and wonderful lady. By the way, this next August, we will celebrate 60 years of happiness together.
We have had nearly sixty wonderful years in the Christian Ministry (we are still full time Pastors). Along the way, two great children, four awesome grandchildren, and two of the most beautiful and intelligent great-grandchildren ...of course!! All of that, and Margaret and I are both in reasonably good health. I must not forget an endless number of life-long friends. What a reunion we’ll have in heaven.
Now you see, any negative thoughts are covered up with God’s many blessings.
Before you plan each day count God's blessings see what he has help you through, before you start what you need help with.
