I’ve learned that 40 really isn’t that old
and not to believe everything I’ve been told
the older I get, the faster time goes
and the wiser I get, the more I know I don’t know
I’m a mom, and a singer- but those aren’t the things
that define me because I’m a child of the King!
I’ve learned it is better to give than receive
and when I focus on others, the blessing’s on me
I’ve learned that it’s better to wait on the Lord
than to simply do things on my own accord
As a mom, I’m still learning to love and be stern
and I’m learning I’ve still got a lot more to learn!
I’ve learned that money doesn’t measure success
and no earthly treasure will make me feel blessed
As a wife, I’ve learned marriage is a marvelous ride
and it’s been a great joy having him by my side
I’m learning that life is too short to hold grudges
and each day I get better at heeding His nudges
As a kid I could not wait to be on my own
but now that’s the opposite of what I’ve been shown
I’m learning to trust and to always depend
on Jesus for everything– He’s my best friend 🙂
Every day that goes by is a blessing to me
and yes- I’m STILL singing because I am free!
I am turning 40 on June 9th. After dreading this number all year, it has turned out to be the most awesome birthday EVER! I haven’t even officially turned 40, and it has already been so great! We took an awesome vacation to Florida a couple of weeks ago, I had an amazing surprise (early) birthday party at my church, I traded in my mommy-mobile (my minivan) for a newer car, we voted in a new lead pastor at our church after an entire year of waiting, and my hubby is taking me away this weekend for a belated anniversary/ birthday celebration! Oh, and I also reached my goal weight today 🙂
God is good!! I am thankful and so very BLESSED!!
