Been busy.................

It's been awhile since I did a post. I've been busy with graduation parties, birthday parties, funerals and just plain livin.......

I had my 72nd birthday on June 6. My grand-daughter was born on June 6 so we always celebrate together. She is 22 this year. Sometimes it is quite a feat to keep up with her. She has an unusual amount of energy. (It can't be that I am running out of steam, no way.)

My daughters oldest son graduated this year. I have a grand-neice who graduated also. How did they grow up so fast?

The husband of a good friend of mine passed away suddenly this past Thursday of a heart attack. He went out fishing with a friend; when they got back and was putting things away, he just went down and died. So unexpected. He was a follower of Christ so she knows where he is but it is very hard when you do not get to say good-bye. God's plans are not always the same as ours. They did not have any children so she is very much alone now; although she has lots of friends.

So in life's journey there is great joy, and great sorrow but life goes on and we must be thankful for each day we have. Hoping you all have a great day!

Life is a series of changes, for sure. I'm so glad God walks along with us because change can be so hard!

I agree with Mari, we never know what the next minute will bring but with God at our side it is all good.

The most important thing is life is salvation..then you know your future is secure.
Sounds like our lives are going along the same track...My grandson will be 22 this month, I often wonder where the time went!

I enjoyed reading about what's going on in your life. Belated Happy Birthday! I, too, have lost two very special elderly friends the past two weeks. It's been a very sad time, but as you said, life is made up of sorrow and joys. I'm thankful for the joy that God gives even in the dark days.
