I am going to enjoy life after 50 if it kills me!

Leaps of Faith

As I end each day of my new life:  new home, new town, no job…

I begin to fret about another day passing with no job and no way to support myself.  “After all,” I think to myself, “You’ve been here for two entire weeks and you don’t have a plan for the rest of your life yet.  What will you do to make money?  Who on earth would hire you?  What if you can’t get more than a minimum wage job?  What kind of a nutcase” leaves a perfectly good job in Florida to move to Buffalo?”

If I listened to myself, I would become overwhelmed.  Well, to be honest, I have had my moments.  However, it is when I ignore me and listen to the whispers of God’s voice that my anxiety eases.  He shushes me like an impatient child and reminds me He’s got it under control.  He’ll make the plan for me if I will just have a little faith.

So I go to bed each night, say my prayers, and know that in the morning, God will still be there to help me figure it all out.

  1. Aunt Thelma didn’t start the career she’s famous for until 52! Truly, sometimes we need the wisdom of our age to guide us to figuring out who we are. We begin to understand that our lives belong to us and not to others. For most of our lives we live the way others expect us to live and be who THEY think we are. You have taken the road less traveled and have the opportunity to find out your “other self” down the path. The self that God intended you to be.

    Question, when you were a little child, who did you think you would be when you grew up?

    Love you!
    Me
