The Older I Get, the More I Get It
The older we get, the more faith we should have because we've experienced more of God's faithfulness and it's God's faithfulness that increases our faith and enlarges our expectations for a life that is full of blessings, opportunities to be a blessing, and the immense possibilities of being a world changer and history maker.
I plan on living to a ripe old age -- but if God has other plans for my future, my faith tells me to make the most of what I have in this day -- just in case, tomorrow, I get my assignment for the other side of heaven.
Living in the moment -- making the most of this day -- embracing those around us and giving them the best of us is what will outlast us, and will even open up doors for future escapades with them because they enjoy you so much. They'll invite you to hang with them when they're getting ready to go on exciting adventures! I say, "Count me in! I don't want to miss a thing!"

It was just "puppy love" that brought my Honey and I together at the ages of 13 and 12. We eventually married at the "mature" ages of 18 and 17. And that's when our faith journey began. Over the years, we encountered many opportunities to stretch our faith, especially when our babies were very sick, when financial situations were out of control, and when our marriage relationship had some rocky periods.But we made it through those times by our strong faith and trust in God. But never was our faith more challenged, than when my 63 years "young" husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney Cancer. Fortunately, the 44 years of marriage and faith-building experiences, caused us to "weather the storm", and still remain in peace and strong in our faith. This "peace that passed understanding" compelled me to blog and share the principles that caused our faith to be unwavering and continues to give me the joys of living large! I'm still here, so I'm not done!. I pray you will grow in your faith as you, not only read the blogs, but apply the principles to your own life -- for the good times, and especially for those times that seem so overwhelming.
