Today I turn 30 years old. As my husband shared recently when we talked about our upcoming birthdays, “I can’t believe my next milestone birthday after this is my 40th!”
Last night, John and I went to Clydes Willow Creek to celebrate. It’s a neat restaurant with a rustic yet elegant ambiance. I had never been to this Clydes location, but I heard great things. The food and experience did not disappoint. Afterwards, we stopped by Sweet Frog for frozen yogurt – my favorite! Tonight we’re having a cookout with my family to celebrate.
This morning while getting ready for church, I was thinking about the lessons I’ve learned over the last 30 years. The words from a church song I was taught in primary (Sunday school for kids ages 4-11) came into my mind: “…Have faith, have hope, live like His son, help others on their way.” I thought about how even though I was taught the words to this song many, many years ago, I am still learning each day what it means to have faith, to have hope, and to love and live as Jesus Christ would. I think even in 30 years I’ll still be learning to apply the words of this song to my life.
We shall see what this next decade holds in store! I am sure there will be joyous moments, hard moments, fun moments, unexpected moments, and more. I am grateful for the moments of life I’ve been given and the moments that lay ahead 🙂
