The love of my life had a birthday while we were apart. This means we will not have the giant "over the hill" party that I'd envisioned locally. We're leaving on Tuesday. He and the children have opted to celebrate in OR.
I do not have a problem with aging. It's not bothered me in the least to hit 30 - I felt I'd finally gained some "respectability" to teach Bible Studies. LOL Turning 40 was hardly a blip. 45 didn't phase me. It is with a great measure of humor, therefore, that I discover it's strange, amazing, bemusing to find myself married to a man who just turned 50! When in the world did that happen? It seems I'd just turned 20 and he was suggesting a wedding in 3 weeks. ::snort::
He still thrills me. He amazes me. His love and passion for God and the Bride of Christ humble me. His care of the children and I are unsurpassed. He is aging WELL.....oh he's so fine....but still he's 50. Wow. That awes me. Somewhere along the line, I think we've grown a bit older.....and I love it...but I'm bemused to find ME married to a man of 50. ::snort::
I would have not traded any minute (the ups and downs) of the past 27 years with this man.
Living all of life before the face of God...
