This is a wonderful day when I leave my computer........ and keep going back, for blog purposes. I thought this week was going to be dry, but it is practically flooding. I am building a traffic jam of drafts waiting to be published.
"God please be in control."
Us bloggers admittedly are a strange sort compared to the norm.
I am what I am. I only want to be me, and my blog reflects me. If you have read much of my stuff, you may think me an old "fuddy duddy." (old southern expression perhaps)
I used to wonder what aging was like. I am learning more and more personally..... (Grandma Mary Martha) !!
This will enlighten you a bit, and maybe give you a kick:
You see the older woman now,
Who likes routine,
Prefers to be at home,
Does not like change particularly,
Relishes QUIET and COUNTRY life
And whose friends would not describe her as
Guess what ??...............
She once RODE A WILD BULL
Not kidding. True.
Well, OK..... he let me pet him
..... but he did not let me ride him.
He bucked me off into the most
concentrated patch of STICKER burs
That I think ever existed.............
This older woman........
She once would routinely
SWIM in the open murky bay
Where big (we assumed)
Dolphin fins glided by in the distance
She once left a note on the van window
Of a non-English, non-Spanish
speaking foreigner just so she
Could meet him and his group
They became friends of the family
OK, running out of true tales now,
But bet you are surprised, still.
Oh.... jumped in a swirling river hole and
Rode, holding my breath through the drainage
Tube to the other side of the road.
A guy that did it after my sister and I
Got taken to the hospital for stitches in his head.
Maybe I was young and dumb,
I was more adventurous then,
I enjoy my memories,
I am content to focus on
My simple pleasures of
Walking with my Lord,
Serving family and whom God brings to me,
All in all,
Getting older is not so bad.
Actually, I quite like it.
Actually for nothing, would I wish to live any of it again,
And I am
SO VERY GRATEFUL
For the destination toward which
I am HEAVEN bound,
Blessed along the way,
Watching and serving,
Family and friends,
Each and every day.
