The reason for yesterday's pinwheel race video? Our granddaughter Anne Marie's fifth birthday party! It was a pinwheel and kite flying theme. The kids made these little paper kites and hung them on the chandelier, they made paper pinwheels and decorated them, had the pinwheel race, flew kites, and there was Papa John's pizza!! Anne even had cupcakes on her dress. What age do you consider a child not a baby anymore? An adult not a child anymore? The older I get, the older I make these ages. To me now, a baby is anyone under five!! And a child is under twenty one!! Maybe this way, I don't feel so ancient. But all of life flows together, and is gone in the blink of an eye. So we remember the stages, because for some reason they can freeze us in time, if only for a while.
"We live for seventy years or so, ( with luck we might make it to eighty) So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Surprise us with love at daybreak...Let your servants see what you're best at-the ways you rule and bless your children. And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us."
The Message and the NKJV combined, Psalm 90
