Three Scores and Ten, That’s Me!

Wrapping my head around the fact that I have now reached 3 scores and 10 is nothing short of amazing to me.  Biblical reference to this milestone indicates living a full life.  If you are not familiar with the term, a score is 20 years, so 3 score equals 60 plus 10 more years or 70 years.  This past January I hit that 70 year mark and I am still in awe.

How in the world did this happen so quickly?  My head and my heart tells me I am years younger, yet the mirror and the aches in my physical body say differently.  This is a milestone I am very proud to have attained because the alternative would be to no longer be in the land of the living but to be present with the Lord.  While I do look forward to that day eventually, I do enjoy the life I am now living.

I have to say I am proud to proclaim being 70 years old.  There are some benefits of longevity that are quite nice and believe me I take full advantage of all of them.  I try not to look backward at my life because there are many “would have”, “could have”, and “should haves” that I missed for whatever reason.  I am not interested in playing “catch up” or reliving any part of my life that I closed the chapter on.  Instead I eagerly look forward to that which is to come and pray that I am ready to receive an abundance of blessings.

While I do not know the future, as long as I have breath I can continue to live my best life, work on myself and be the best person I can be.  I have contentment which I am grateful for and there are some things I still want to do if I am able.  I just have to decide when and how and leave the rest up to God.  In the meantime I look forward to another year and enjoying the life I am living.

I do want to end with one of my favorite Scriptures that always brings me joy.

It is Isaiah 46:4 which states: Even to your old age and gray hairs
I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

Knowing this comforts me because I am not walking through this life alone, regardless of my circumstances.  What a blessing!
