Growing……..Psalms 90:12

I found myself at forty
It is a quiet part of me
The part that peacefully wakes and wants
Little more than to talk with Thee
The face I see is not the girl
I saw at twenty one
Wisdom shows the trail it took
To where we are from where we begun
I would not trade a day I lived
That brought me to my peace
The tears I cried, the laughs I tried
Have been delivered up for me
How happy, soulful, aching
My forty years have given
Content, heartfelt and knowing
With my God I’m fully living
So I gladly trade the youthful skin
For peace of Him that glows within
And as the grace of God grows sweet with time
I can’t wait til I turn ninety nine! (smile)
