I will think about OLD … tomorrow. ~ FMF Post


This has been a 5 minute post!

Happy Friday. Once again I am joining Lisa-Jo and the Five Minute Writers over at The Gypsy Mama.

We put aside all the rules of grammer and sentence format and just write our hearts on the provided prompt! No worries … just heart words!

The rules can be found by following the 3 minute button; in short…

Write for 5 minutes only … no worries, no edits.

Then link up over on Lisa-Jo’s blog.

Then jump on  over to the blog before (& the one after…) yours, or more, and encourage one another.  Enjoy yourselves!

The Prompt is: OLD …

Go…

As I look in the mirror I wonder at the lines at the corners of these bright green eyes. I wonder because I feel all of 16 years at heart.

They say you are only as old as you feel. Funny how that changes day to day now!

The bible says:  “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:The old has gone, the new is here!”

 The old has gone and the new smile and laugh lines have immurged! No furrowed brows or frown lines in this face! Just signs of a life lived well and peaceful, most of the time.

I lean toward the mirror, as I squint just a bit with these 40 something eyes, and relish the twinkle of that 16 year old spirit as I apply the mascara to start the day.

I lean back and glance over this face once more and realize … I am more beautiful and as full of life, or more, than I was at 16. I no longer anticipate the “when I am old enough” or the coming weekend. I no longer look to a future, better day.

It is “IN” today that I live to the fullest … I cannot live fully looking forward into the unknown. This is the day the LORD has made, I will be glad and rejoice in it…I will think about getting old, maybe, tomorrow.

OLD? Nahhhh … just the beginning of a New Day!

STOP!

Blessings Loves! 🙂
