Almost A Half Century

Standard

I’m 4 months away from 50. In my own head, I’m still thirty-something. However, reality slaps me in the face when I look in the mirror. I see things that I didn’t see a few years back. It seems there has been a crow dancing around my eyes. Lines are beginning to form on my once firm face. The pigment in my hair has completely disappeared and my body thermometer has blown a fuse, but I am not complaining!

Turning 50 will be great! It will be a testimony of the many lessons I have learned and been able to teach. Every line on my face is just part of God’s artwork. My Silver hair, a representation of time, struggle, transition and wisdom. Every hot flash; a reminder that the fire of God burns within me. You see, I have decided that this year is and will be a very important year in my life; not because I will be a half century old (wow) but because I have had a half century of life lessons and experiences. I have so much to share!

My life has not been perfect but it has been wonderful! Wonderful because I am very blessed! I’m blessed to have a wonderful husband and great children! I’m blessed because the Lord faithfully continues to teach me and lead me! I’m blessed because, I have finally gotten revelation of how important it is for me to love myself! “Why?” You wonder. Well, because if I don’t love myself, then I can’t love God. God is love and He dwells inside of me. I’ve also learned that true love is always honest and sometimes it brings correction which can sometimes be painful! I refuse to be afraid of the pain because, as they say, “no pain, no gain!” So, as I prepare to “live it up” right in and through 50, I offer you this:

Love the Lord and love yourself! Focus on all the wonderfully positive things about you! Look at yourself in the mirror daily and say, “God made you very special and today I am going to take good care of you!” Now, go and make every moment count! Today is a great day!

About weightingonthelord

Blessings! Just in case you are wondering, I am a wife, mother, grandmother and most importantly, a Jesus lover! At times, I get inspired to write. Not about anything specific, just life; my thoughts, my faith,my worship, my struggles, my ministry, my family......whatever. I am obsessed with the sunrise and sunset! I have a few things on my bucket list. Simple things, like: -Take a picture in a Lavender Field. -Take pictures of the sunset and sunrise from a mountain top. -Visit New Zealand. -Learn to Make a dress. -Grow out my gray hair and be proud of it. -Preach to a stadium full of people. -Preach in another part of the world. -Finally, conquer these 15 extra pounds and get the best body I've had! So, there you have it! So, I invite you to read what I write and share what you feel. Maybe, I'll make you smile or cause you to laugh. Maybe, I'll make you think or even shed a tear. I want to be real and give you a glimpse into my life while I am, weighting on the Lord. Lea
