40 Creeps Up On You…I Know

After our Sunday morning Bible study with Jason and Kristin, we celebrated Kristin’s 40th birthday.  She was a bit sad to have left the 30s but such is life on this earth.  I found these candles in McAllen last week…the tips of the flames were the same color as the candles…that was cool.

While Kristin wasn’t too happy to have turned 40, it seemed appropriate to remind all of us that it’s better to grow old and be found in Christ, than to be youthfully young and not know Him.  That was the case with her former life.  Isn’t it great to be a new creation?  Nothing can take us away from the love of Christ…not even old age.  In fact, I think old age can bring us that much closer to Him as we mature and as we take each breath that is one more breath closer to our last.

Philippians 1:21 has to be one of my favorite life verses…for me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 

(not to mention I won’t mind letting someone else deal with taxes after I’m gone…lol)
