Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

It is ALL about 5!!!!!!

Charles Demuth - (1883-1935)
In 5 days we celebrated three birthdays!!

The youngest is now 5
Making him the age of Kindergarten in the fall...do you hear me crying already?

The teen is now 15 - yes'm... ten years and 3 days apart... my last two boys
He is now wanting his driver's permit... oh, my... the 5th child to go through this stage
He is my 5th child

I have 5 boys

I turned 50!

The number 5 means GRACE, I will take that.

Thomas Jefferson's face is on the nickel - 5 cent coin

J. F. Kennedy's face is on the half dollar- 50 cent coin

Abraham Lincoln's face graces  the-  $5.00 bill

Ulysses S. Grant's face on the - $50.00 bill

We have 5 fingers on our hand

We have 5 toes on our feet

So many references in the Bible
5-Fold Ministry of Prophet, Preacher, Teacher, Evangelist, and Apostle

5 Fish 

5 Books in the Torah

50 is the Year of Jubilee!!!
Now that is one that I would love to experience in the natural, but I do experience it in my relationship with Christ!  The year of Jubilee for the Jews meant...
  • Land was allowed to rest
  • Debts were forgiven
  • Slaves were freed
  • Estates were returned to families who had lost their inheritance and forced into poverty

What  a fun week of 5's!!! Now I need 5 minutes of rest!

Happy Birthday Janette. Sounds like a lot of fun times at your house! And I am encouraged to know your boys are ten years apart :)

Happy Birthday, Janette!!! Wow, what a week. (and you hit it before me) You did a fabulous job on this post girl! You pics & collage are great. Love the lettering on the pictures. Get some rest (hopefully more than 5 minutes).

Happy Birthday to all of you!! What a wonderful post. Last year was the year of 5's for us. I turned 50, and my daughter turned 15. Her birthday has alot of 5's in it too :-)
Have a wonderful weekend Janette!

e-Mom said...

LOL, I enjoyed this, Janette!!! You look GREAT for 50.

How about this.... Matthew, Mark, Luke-Acts and John? Some call it the NT Pentateuch (Torah).

...five gold rings...

...fifty states...

...Fifth Amendment...

...Hawaii Five-0...

There are lots of them!!! (Now I need a 5 minute nap too.)

Have a great weekend.

So cool, I love it that you have a five year old at 50! And such handsome boys;)

Sandy said...

Happy 50th to you, Janette!!
You sure don't look your age,girl!
I know I've told you many times
before, but it bears repeating-
your kids are beautiful. Thanks
for sharing all your joy and
with such an interesting bunch
of facts on 5's!

Rebecca said...

Isn't that Jubilee concept a GREAT one?! Continue to be encouraged and strengthened in heart and mind for the adventures of the coming days (and YEAR)!

Debbie said...


You said that you "Turned 50". For some reason, I though that your birthday was coming up at the END of the month. I might have you confused with another blogger.

So... Happy Birthday!!

Last week, I made the decision to refer to my upcoming 50th as my "Golden Jubilee" and treat it in royal fashion. When I clicked here this morning, I wanted to shout Hallelujah because this post went right along with it.

Great post from a very creative Golden Girl.

JillAileenJones said...

Happy Birthday dear friend!!!!! I hope it was as special as you are. Happy Birthday to your boys too.
My baby will turn 3 in 6 weeks and I can't believe it-it goes so fast.
I loved this post as always-really cute-fun 5 facts. Looks like you all had some fun birthday time together. Fun that you all have birthday close together to celebrate-two of mine have birthdays on the 21st like me but different months-makes it easier to remember though-will be good as I get older.
PS-I hope I look half as good as you at 50-you shine with the love of Jesus.
I still don't know the details of what time I will be up there on the 29th-I will keep you posted.
Happy Saturday too!
Love and Hugs

Debbie said...

This was such a fun, cleavor post!! Just like you...HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you all!! Your kids are just adorable, and you look wonderful. ENJOY! May the Lord make His face to shine upon you all! HUGS

Sonja said...

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A VERY SPECIAL 50 YEAR OLD!! You make 50 look like so much fun! And from one who is further down the road... trust me... these are GOOD years!

I love the collage, wish I could figure out how to do that.

I think this is going to be a special year!

So, I Begin this Journey...... said...

OHGOSH! Happy Birthday and I am so out of sync here!

Debbie said...

You are so clever my friend. I'm going to join you for five minutes of rest. LOL.

You don't look your age. You are beautiful inside and out. May you have a fabulous birthday today.

Enjoy the 50th one. It was the beginning of the best years of my life so far.

I love the "Year of Jubilee."

Wishing all the birthday fives a very happy year. YOU most especially! What a cute picture! CONGRATULATIONS on the family you made and the great works you've accomplished. You inspire all who meet you I'm sure. As a member of your "bloggy follower friends" I must say how impressed I am by what you've created here. I love coming here to visit with you. Maybe *this* is the year you visit a northern farm...? ;-)

And I never knew how important 5 is! Even though someone in the family will soon join your youngest as a five-year-old. So cool! I've been having fun taking a bit longer look around your blog and I am loving what I see. So joyful! So faith-filled!
