Last Year of My Twenties

by jessicaturner on July 27, 2011

Today is my 29th birthday.

This birthday has been the first in a while to really hit me.

When I met Matthew, he was 29 and I was 20.

Now I am 29.

During that time I graduated from college, moved away from home, started a career, got married, birthed two babies and so much more.

Thank you Lord for so many blessings.

I pray that the next 10 years are filled with even more wonderful memories. At 39 I will have a teenager and a tween – whoa. Matthew and I will have been married for 17 years. I wonder what the wold will look like? What new technology will exist? What will the Lord have taught me?

I’m entering this 29th year with great expectation for the future and embracing where God has me, and the plans He has for my life.

Happy Birthday….one thing the blog world can do… to close the age gap. I read so many blogs that are rich…full of wisdom and maturity…..and the age of the person does not factor into my reading…..but I must say….there are times I am still caught by surprise how young you and many of the writers are…..or I guess I can say how old I am…..I could be your mom…..
Blessing to your special day~

Happy Birthday!! I hope it’s a super special day for you. I’m 30 and one thing I’m finding as a now Mum of 2 is that it becomes more about your years and more about your kids. I’m finding I’m ok with that but I do wonder if I’ll ever feel like an adult.
