If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Five Minute Friday: Try




Five Minute Friday is where we are given a prompt and you write for five minutes on your blog and then go here to link up.  Why not join us this week?

FMF Prompt:  Try

Well today I turn 60.  How in the world did that happen?  I'm trying not to be upset by getting old. I'm trying to be thankful that I am still here in this world.  The first 60 years have been pretty wonderful. I've had hard times and hard things to go through just like everyone else. But I have been really blessed too.  Recently, I'm trying to be more intentional about being grateful for all life's little blessings and the big ones too.  I'm so thankful for my husband and my girls and my grandson. I'm thankful for my job and my church family. I'm thankful for my family and friends. And I'm trying to be thankful for being 60.

What are you trying to do?

Cathy

  2. Happy Birthday, Cathy! This seems to be a good day for Five Minute Friday...along with you, Marie Gregg and Jeanne Takenaka's youngest son have this as their birthday.

    What I'm trying to do is, well, survive. Last night was nearly my last, and I'm still pretty shattered.

    But also still here, and looking forward to tomorrow.

  7. Happy Birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day. I'm trying to learn to be a caregiver. And to be patient. And unselfish. And... Goodness, maybe I need to try harder. LOL
