Wednesday in the Word-Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

It is funny at how we start thinking about getting older as we become OLDER isn't it? Seems when we are in our teens we can't wait to be in our 20's. By the time we enter into our 30's we somewhat slow down with the excitement of reaching 40. Then we began counting EVERY year instead of every 10 years of life. I can remember being a teenager and thinking those in their 30's was knocking on death's door because of their age. WOW!   The truth is whether we spend 1 minute entertaining the thought, 1 hour, 1 day, 1 month, 1 year or 10 years, we are still going to grow older if we live.

 Time will pass, the sun will continue to set and rise and flowers will bloom and wilt. Life will still go on until God's call of life to end comes.




Psalm 139:13-16 says;

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.


We're here for the privilege of celebrating who we are in God, and being thankful for having made it through another year!

Another year older to celebrate family....




Another year to celebrate life is simply His Amazing Grace.....



No matter what day it is we're supposed to concentrate on HIM always and remember HE is the reason for our being and doing. 

So thankful to celebrate another year of life today.

I like what Mark Twain said:

This is the day the Lord has made...let's be glad and rejoice in it. Psalm 118:24

  13. Trying to catch up a bit after being out of town and nursing a cold. I love your words here. It is a privilege to get older because so many have not had the opportunity we have. My dear, little mother recently said, 'Don't get old!' When I asked her what my options would be, she laughed and said she guessed I'd better enjoy getting old! So true. It comes with changes and challenges, but when God gives long life I plan to make the most of every day!
