60th birthday blog.




Another milestone and nearer a tombstone!!! I reach age 60 today and am grateful for health and strength. It is difficult to readjust to the fact I do not HAVE to go to work most days and my only deadlines are those I set myself. It feels like a holiday that has to end but actually doesn’t!  I take seriously and concur with the words of the Psalmist in Ps 89:47-‘Remember how short my time is:’ and of James 4:14 ‘ For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.’ However the Psalmist also states ‘My covenant shall stand fast with him.’ That is the assurance we need-He is our covenant God even unto and through the portal of death. Lord make what’s left of our lives fruitful-‘you in your small corner and I in mine.’ May they contribute to the ultimate accolade-‘Well done good and faithful servant!’
