That's quite a statement isn't it? It's very true. I'll be 50 this year in the Autumn.
I've been doing a bit of pondering and have come to realize that I am glad I am older. There is comfort and peace having some wisdom that comes from walking with the Lord, of being in a happy and satisfying marriage, and raising a family. I am a grandma, too, of one sweet little girl who will be three this Saturday.
I am not the same woman I was when I was 24 and newly married...and I thank God for that! He has taken my life and made it into what He had planned for me.
Philippians 2:13- for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
I sometimes find myself feeling caught in the middle - I have adult kids and younger ones still. I wonder what kind of blogger am I? Am I a Mommy blogger? A house blogger? A granny blogger? Can I be all of the above?
I have found myself recently reading some new to me blogs and some older ones I don't often read and I don't think I fit into the above categories. I am not youngish or hip, I am not one who can spend lots of time and money to follow the trends of home decorating.
I guess I will just be me.
Raising a family still.
Loving my husband.
Being a good friend.
Encouraging others, hopefully.
And by His grace, following Him.
