Thirty Nine Years Closer to Home

Today...
          is my  birthday.

And, I am having so much fun!

I was asked if it bothers me if others know my age.  The question made me
                                                                                                              think.
There was a time...
                   once
                                          ...when it bothered me.

It bothered me because I had a deep seeded fear.  I hated to be reminded of the years ticking by, because I was scared.  I was scared to die and face God.

But now...
              I want to go home...
                                           I long for the day when I can, once again, dwell in the presence of my King.

I want to be reunited with my family,
                                       and
                                                  .....bask in rich celestial light.

No, I am not afraid to share my age.
                        Because  ...each year that passes, is one less year I am away from home.

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
