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's All in the Numbers

Benjamin decided to change his name to his Dads....

Well there has been numbers changing in our household the last five days.  Yes, in five days three of us changed our age.  I share my birthday month with my two youngest children.  Since out of six children no one shares my name, it is kinda nice to share my birthday month.  My husband found the most precious card from the two younger boys...and no, I don't receive cards from the older ones...I am sure that is just too old fashioned for my high-tech adult children.  The card hit the spot since at one time I won the June Cleaver award at my high school reunion.  Oh yes, I had the most children at that time...and that was only four!  I was also a stay-at-home mom....even in the 80's there were few of us, so voted June Cleaver.


Here are our numbers!

Year 2011 - we had 5 in common...yes, age 5, age 15, and I entered the big 50!!

Year 2012 - we had  6 in common - age 6, age 16, and 51 ( add 5 plus 1 = 6)

Year 2013 - we have the  number 7 in common - age 7, age 17 and 52 (5+2=7)

Just another number...another year....another time to see God's hand in all of our lives!  Happy Birthday precious sons...may you grow up to love and serve the Lord all the days of your lives.  My continuous prayer for all my children and their spouses and my future grandchildren....Love the Lord Your God!

Happy birthday to you and your sons, it's a great photo of the three of you. I also wanted to thank you for the comment you left on my blog, I have written the quote from your pastor on a card and put it in my bible, it was the word of encouragement I needed...bless you for sharing it.

Happy Birthday to the three of you! Cards...someday they might send them again. My two don't send cards anymore either. But then I don't always send cards. What's up with this? Cards are good and lovely.
