Special Years As Ages & Vice Vera

This is a re post from my Xanga site on Sunday, 13 September 2009

I can recall when I started noticing some things in my life. I saw some significant in this. When I turned 33, I though about how old Jesus was when He died. What it felt like to be 33.

But as I look back in my teens, I though when I turned 13 that my father was going to died. I don't recall why I thought that. My father, David coughed a lot.

My father was sick man. He worked in a foundry. But when I turned 13, It was the start of my teenage years. My father was born in 1913.

By the time I was 19 or 20, things had a turn. I was more into Jesus and reading the Bible. When I reach 29 another turn came. I would be in my 30's.

Then as I grew, I started reading the psalms as the age I was at that time. Psalm 33- and so on. By the time I reach 39, I saw some special years coming into my life. Then I went into my 40's where I am at now.

My father's mother, Jennie's life to be only about 41 or 42. My mother gave birth to me when she was almost 43. I began to catch on to things during my 40's.

My father's father, John passed away about 46. My father was about 49 1/2 when I was born. When my sibling turn in their 60's and 70's, I noticed some things. ...63 and 48, 69,70, and so forth.

The years 1988, 1989, 1993, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and beyond. I saw some things too. I don't know how I come across this things. But I am so happy when I see the connections.

May the LORD reveal to us things that we can see. May we be aware of the times that we are in. May the joy of the LORD be fill in us on our journey.

On The Journey...
