It's My Party and I'll Cry If I Want To!

Tis the last day of January -already! And...it is also my birthday.
Some of you gals out there in blogland are real troopers! You handle age with such grace and you see so many positive things about it. I admire you for that!

But I must confess, I'm a little pouty about it. Now, normally, I'm a pretty upbeat kinda gal. I take life one whim at a time and I can dodge a lot of it's downs because I know there'll be ups!

But when it comes to this whole idea of aging...well... I would just love to protest, that is if I could! It just doesn't seem right! And I gotta be a realist here!
I don't like what aging does. I don't like that sin caused such a thing to come on us so harshly.
I don't like that we loose some things that -well, frankly, I'd like to keep!
Nope...to me I see these sorts of images...and I don't look forward to the day that I look in the mirror and see such a contrast!
-To live is Christ, to die is gain! That is our hope!-The lovely Betty Page as young woman
Betty Page as a not so young woman anymore
(I posted her first because I heard she became a Christian later in life, and now she's gone.)
(Oh and by the way, I'm wayyy toooo young to know who she is on my own...my DH -who's much older than me, I mean a bit older than myself, told me who she was! :-)~
we do lots of teasing around here, pay no mind to it



And lovely Liz Taylor- look at those eyes, she's beautiful!

But a wheelchair? Come on!

Charming Sean Connery-


Now this gentleman, I think

And Merle...he shocks me the most

How could this happen? How could he transform from the above to this?
I don't get that!
*****
Take no offense please, at me using these people....I just wasn't about to show my own pictures, ya know?!?
:-)
It's only fun and jest!
Life is funny, isn't it?

1 Pet 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
Titus 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

Happy Birthday to YOU!
I hope you have a blessed and WONDERFUL GOOD DAY!

Something my grandfather told me a long time ago...beauty is in the eyes of the beholder...and beauty also comes from within first then radiates to the outside! I am sure you are still beautiful and just think you are such a wonderful, beautiful mother to your children!
I hope you have such a happy day!

Happy Birthday Donna!
I have a funny AGE joke for you to laugh at today...
A man once told me...
Life is like a roll of Toilet Paper, the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes.....
Ok, not the funniest, but I hope it put a smile on your face!
