Growing Old
October 22,2010

One of my prayers is that my husband and I can grow old in our home together. That we can take care of each other and not have to depend on other people. I pray that we will be healthy, strong in strength and Strong in the Lord as we grow old.

Psalm 20:4
4 May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.

In Jesus name I will agree with your prayer Ginger. The garden with the little wooden seat looks like where Jesus would sit to wait and talk with you. Lovely. xxxx

Oh Ginger, what a lovely prayer--and I pray it for you and your husband as well as my husband and me...
We already got the rocking chairs for the porch!

Have a beautiful weekend!!!

This is a wonderful prayer and I am sure there are many who feel the same. I know I do... = ) Have a wonderful week-end. BLESSINGS, Debbie

Continued good health and blessings to you both! We love you guys so much!!!

I think you've got a long way to go but I'm adding my prayers to this too. ☺☺

I hope and pray for that for you too, Ginger. I'm so thankful we are able to stay in our home and have enough money to live as well as we need to, maybe "weller". Of course we're not old yet, LOL
Hugs & blessings,

Oh dear Ginger, surely God shall fulfill the desires of your heart... He shall satisfy your souls with good health and long life!!

I came across your blog, and I find it so cute and inspirational. Beautiful prayer.

Beautiful prayer. That is my prayer as well.

What a wonderful prayer. My in laws have been in their home for almost 70 years. They are just now declining and needing help, but what a blessing to be in their own home.

That is my prayer for me and my husband, too. My dad so wanted to be the one to take care of my mom as she grew worse with Alzheimer’s. He did his very best until he unexpectedly got cancer and died within a few short months. Then my mom went downhill so fast and died 7 months later. It’s been a rough year for us kids! But I thank the Lord that when all was said and done, they only had 7 months without each other. So what’s been a hardship to us in losing them both so close together, ended up being a blessing for them.

And, I agree with you in Jesus' name! It sure feels like it's coming faster than I ever expected.

Thanks for sharing, Ginger!

Hugs, Karen

Oh, Ginger, that is one of our prayers and hopes, too. Especially as we approach my 73 birthday and Mickey's 78th!!!

That is a wonderful prayer. What a blessing.
Thanks for hosting, Ginger!

October 24, 2010 at 12:45 PM

I'm in agreement with that prayer for you guys and us as well. Who knows...we may all be raptured together before we grow old.

October 24, 2010 at 2:46 PM

I pray that same prayer for you and Wayne. God bless you as you live for Him.

October 24, 2010 at 3:24 PM

Ginger, This is the same prayer that my dh and I have and are praying daily. Beautiful post..
Thank you for sharing.

October 24, 2010 at 3:46 PM

What a lovely prayer and desire. And what a great example of love and faithfulness you are setting. Praying God's blessings on you both today!

This is my first time commenting as well as visiting your lovely blog.

I think this is a beautiful prayer, and it is also something that I pray for as well. However, I also pray that when the time comes that the Lord will help me to be content in widowhood (that's a hard one to swallow).

I would pray that for you and for me. I have a good friend that has been married to her sweetheart for 64 years, they are such a joy to be around. Thanks for hosting Spiritual Sundays!

That is a wonderful prayer and one we all share. :) It is truly heartbreaking to see elderly people is such dire physical condition and having to depend on others for their basic needs.

May God answer your prayer

Sometimes wishes turn true.
My in laws are 86 and 84 and they are OK and looking after themselves.
