LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

1. You and your teeth don't sleep together.

2. Your try to straighten out the wrinkles in your socks and
discover you aren't wearing any.

3. At the breakfast table you hear snap, crackle, pop and you're
not eating cereal.

4. Your back goes out but you stay home.

5. When you wake up looking like your driver's license picture.

6. It takes two tries to get up from the couch.

7. When your idea of a night out is sitting on the patio.

8. When you're on vacation and your energy runs out before your
money does..

9. When you say something to your kids that your mother said to
you and you always hated it.

10. When all you want for your birthday is to not be reminded of
your age.

11. When you step off a curb and look down one more time to make
sure the street is still there.

12. Your idea of weight lifting is standing up.

13. It takes longer to rest than it did to get tired.

14. Your memory is shorter and your complaining lasts longer.

15. Your address book has mostly names that start with Dr.

16. You sit in a rocking chair and can't get it going.

17. The pharmacist has become your new best friend.

18. The twinkle in your eye is merely a reflection from the sun on
your bifocals.

19. It takes twice as long - to look half as good.

20. Everything hurts, and what doesn't hurt - doesn't work.

21. You look for your glasses for half an hour and they were on
your head the whole time.

22. You sink your teeth into a steak - and they stay there.

23. You give up all your bad habits and still don't feel good.

24. You have more patience, but it is actually that you just don't
care anymore.

25. You finally get your head together and your body starts
falling apart.

26. You wonder how you could be over the hill when you don't even
remember being on top of it.

Cristina - I really enjoyed that!

Happy Birthday, Gayla and Sam!

Sam, you are an honorary member of bluecollar!

Gayla, thanks for the wisdom and encouragement over the past year and a half; wisdom that comes from your 96 years of experience... :-)

Whoa, baby! Wait!
I need sunglasses for the number of candles on *that* cake!
Phew! That's better.
Ha! Cristina, that was great!
(Not that any of those things apply to Gayla or Sam, of course.

I hope your day is as blessed as we are by knowing you. You are a joy to me. I'm looking forward to the next year learning and laughing together, Lord willing.

Oh my!!!

That was too funny!! Thank you Cristina, for posting such warm and heartfelt sentiments! hahaha!!!

Mark, I'm most happy to pass along the wisdom of the ages, or is that aged? So now I'm 96, huh? You've got me aging faster than a bottle of fine wine!

Thank you Craver! :)

Ah Susan, following in Mark's footsteps, are we?! :) Somehow we've got to illuminate the great big skies over Texas, I guess it might as well be our yummy birthday cake!
