I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...

Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.



Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.

Sizzle, spark, explode -

Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -

The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.

This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.

Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.

Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

Crowned in our
gray glory

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

Today our Lord gave me these definitions for those of us, in His body, who have matured in age:

1.) Wrinkles = Life paths

Psalm 23:3
...he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Also, wrinkles = Life maps

2.) Gray hair strands = glory crowns

Psalm 8:5
...and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

3.) The things on us that have "gone south" = southern hospitality

Song of Solomon 4:16
Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits.

The words "old age" are NOT, necessarily, bad terms - not according to GOD'S Word, the Holy Bible.  Isaiah 53:1 asks, "Who hath believed our report?..."

And remember that GOD is old, young, and
middle-aged.  We, His people, all gloriously fit.  Let us sing, rejoice, and celebrate, and do as instructed in Philippians 4:11, "...for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content."

Well, I hope that you enjoyed my "southern" hospitality (laugh).

  1. Sandra, this is wonderful! I love how you correlate wrinkles with life paths :) I have plenty!

  2. I love coming by and my Spirit rejuvenated by your penned words sister. The path I'm walking on might have a big wrinkle now (at my workplace) but I know it would be straightened in His perfect time. Still not sure if He is closing this door or not (it's a long story because He took me away from being an Orthopedic nurse and brought me to Corrections when I got hurt in 1997. So, if I may ask for your prayers and thank you.

    I am smiling now whenever I see a little gray hair sticking out. I arm myself with a little tweezer but I should start arming myself with "prayer" that it is found because I'm walking on the path of righteousness. To God be the glory!

    May the Lord bless you sister and may His strength always be yours. "I am" and will always celebrate with you. "Let us sing a new song" to the One Who deserves all our praises and thanks.

  3. Hi Gina -

    Thank you for visiting and commenting.

    How interesting that you visited because recently you have been in my thoughts.

    Glad you expressed, "...this is wonderful!"

    Our Lord desires that we focus more on eternal matters...

    Glory to His holy glorious name!

  4. Every time I think of aging Sandra, and (I am older than you)I picture myself a baby on my father's (ancient of days) lap. Lev 19:32 gives us the hoary (gray) head of respect for the aged.
    By the way sister you so inspired me and my brother with your post, I wrote about it yesterday on my Alone blog. May God continue to work in and bless you my dear sister.

  5. BTW, I truly enjoyed your southern hospitality! It's warm, serene, comforting and filled with His love...Who would resist eating His "fruits"? Only those who haven't tasted the sweetness of His Word, and who haven't known His gift of grace. May many more come to the Lord.

    Your resolve to love and serve GOD is a faithful witness that inspires.

    Certainly, you are in my prayers.

    Glad you were inspired. I love that Ancient of days term...

    Wow! Susie, thank you so much for the Leviticus 19:32 scripture. I read it in full and it struck me deeply. I don't recall ever reading that before.

    Thank you for your kind words, saints of GOD.

    Hi again - glad you visited again so soon (smiles)

    Glad to know that you enjoyed my southern hospitality.

    GOD is so good!

    Psalm 34:8 - KJV
    O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

  8. HE is not done with us yet - creating us means all stages of life, wrinkles, changing hair color and all, eh?

  9. Hi Marijo -

    Yes - Amen - wrinkles - those life paths - are from our Lord - our LIFE GIVER!

  10. Nice picture and analogies Sandra. I have to admit however, that I'm just not mentally there yet. :-)

  11. I thank God for every year. So wonderful to meet a woman who celebrates that, too!

  12. Greetings -

    Thank you for visiting and commenting.

    I to you, my dear sister in Christ.

    Yes, thankfulness is due to our Lord indeed!

    Thank you for your kind words. It is a pleasure to meet you, as well.

  13. I am the first one in line to watch you blow out your candles!!

    You are a beautiful woman of God - inside and out.

    And witty, too - "southern" hospitality! Sandra, you're a hoot! And yes, I have some southern hemisphere issues, too :)

    I shared with you that our birthdays are only 2 days apart - I will proudly be 57 this year! Seems impossible, but I'm owning it - and I'm wearing my "mature" lady crown with pride!!


  14. Hi Sharon -

    Thank you for your kind words.

    I laughed, too, when our Lord gave me that "southern hospitality."

    Glad to know that you are crowned with our Lord's glory.

  15. I like what you've said here. I may only be going on 48, but I see the gray hair, and my body doesn't feel young any more. :-)
