Turning the big 60

--My Birthday is this week and I turn the Big 60--NO THIS LADY in the PICTURE is not nannykim, but I love her attitude toward life. She lives it with delight. Photo is from

I want to continue to live life fully, but am I actually doing that now? I need to think about it. 

One of the most important aspects of living for me is getting to know God better. Life is about on-going relationships and my relationship with God is always on-going too.  As I was reflecting on this the past few days, I realized how little we know of  Him. I have the Bible which reveals many important things--but really when you think about it , it is just 1500 pages or so (depending on the Bible you use). I have creation too---as I ponder on creation and how much we don't understand and know in this gigantic universe  I realize how much more so this applies to  knowing the God who created it all. Jesus came to show us God. BUT--what I even know of Him is limited to the Bible's revelation, and my experience and the experience and testimony of others.

When I quiet my thoughts and think about Who is God and Who am I........When I think about what is Truth and How do we know it. ......well, it can be difficult. Yes , I have the Bible and yes, I feel God has given this to mankind as a revelation. But as we know, there is a lot of  disagreement on how to understand the teachings. Some of it is very clear and I am thankful for that--but there are so many interpretations !!! 

I see a constant need to go to God and to ask of Him about everything. I am often surprised at how He answers even when I don't actually pray for something ---I may just be thinking about it and boom He gives an answer.  But at the same time I am in the position that I simply have to just trust Him ---my knowing Him is up to Him as I seek His face.

I think this song below expresses how I feeL


  1. Happy Birthday to Youuuuuuuuuu

    Happy Birthday to yOUUUUUUUUUUU

    The Lady & Sons restaurant is in the historic district . I always stayed at the Inn at Ellis Square and it is just accros the square, you can see her restaurant from the hotel. It's not a real high class hotel but in the heart of everything , easy access to tours etc, river walk etc

    her sons don't have another restaurant yet, only her brother, where it's all sea food at his restaurant, there was a cool little restaurant I think named SOHO, Cheryl from Back In THe DAy BAkery told me to try it and i liked it very much for lunch, another retro place
