II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Getting older...

Wow, I am growing up. I can tell because I used to count down the days until my birthday beginning sometime in June. This year it has just snuck up on me. I will be 32 in only 3 short days and I honestly don't care. Don't get me wrong...I care about the PARTY and the CAKE and the GIFTS!!! I just don't care about getting older.
That's a major change for me. Turning 30 was life-threatening to me. I thought for sure I was going to suddenly turn into this older, responsible, mature (read: BORING!) person when my digits changed to starting with a "3"...but not even close. My life is only getting better and better with each passing year. Well, actually, my "life" (meaning circumstances) hasn't change a whole lot...but my perspective has. What a enormous thing PERSPECTIVE is! It can make the worst day seem do-able...and the best day seem ordinary. What a shame it is that we let so many opportunities for wonderful memories and totally fun times pass us by because we have a nasty attitude.
No Way Jose! Not me! I refuse!
I'm turning 32 on Saturday and I'm STOKED! I'm gonna start partying on Friday and not be done until Sunday when I go to bed! Even the mundane things can be exciting and silly if you decide on it. :o)
My kickboxing class on Saturday better watch out...who KNOWS what kind of crazy stuff I'll have them doing to celebrate my day?!?! ha ha ha ha ha ha Hmmm...that's got me thinking...I need something special to wear...something crazy and funky and totally out-there....hmmm....:o)
