As I’ve said before God’s economy is never wasteful and He never squanders the life training He gives us. He will use everything you’ve gone through when you trust Him to lead. God will call out the big dream He placed in your heart decades earlier and give it wings, if you’re willing to step out. Both Abraham and Moses prove you are never too old for God to use you—and both of these remarkable biblical heroes changed the world.
I just turned sixty. I can’t even believe I said that out loud! I mean, come on, sixty??? How on earth did that happen??
Honestly, in the months preceding my birthday, I tried to avoid even thinking about it. But my husband, God love him, would occasionally remind me with a little glint in his eye that at fifty-nine I was actually in my sixtieth year. Cute. Not. He’s sixty-two so he can get away with it 🙂
I don’t know why it bothered me so much. Turning forty was a big milestone and I think the realization hit home that I was nothing resembling a young person anymore. Turning fifty wasn’t so bad. I just slid right into that decade and didn’t think too much about it but sixty. Whoa….
My Puzzle part. That’s what we’ve always called each other. In fact, it’s inscribed on a signet ring I had made for him before we got married. Our life together often feels like a giant, 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle! We haven’t always known where we fit and we’ve been moved about trying to fit here or there or just fit in. But we’ve always fit together.
We clicked from the instant we met. It didn’t hurt he was super cute, an incredibly gifted musician, smarter than anyone I’ve ever known and funny as the dickens! I knew very quickly he was the one I wanted to marry. And we did, 31 years ago. And in those 31 years he’s taught me more about the Father’s heart than anyone else I’ve ever known.
March was a busy month of posts and recipes. I was privileged to speak about The God Dare at a women’s conference in Alabama and traveled to Nashville a few times to visit family. And, it was a busy month of writing! I’m happy to say, The God Dare is just about finished and should be out around Mother’s Day!
Here’s a roundup…….
I got to share over at a couple different websites and published 3 posts right here in my own little corner of the internet. I’m taking a moment to put links to this week’s posts on one page so you’ll have them all in one place.
Every month, I get to share on some wonderful websites with women in all stages of life: moms, single women, empty nesters, you name it. I’m thrilled to be part of a community of writing women who share honestly from their hearts and deep life experiences. We write about all sorts of different topics but all relevant to what it means to be a woman in today’s world.
