Looking Back Seventy Two Years…

Some thoughts and collages looking back on my Seventy Second Birthday.

Lived in proximity to the Pacific Ocean for 72 years anywhere from a couple miles away to now over 400 miles away. I’m a West Coast Girl.

A city girl for 67 years.

A born again believer in Jesus Christ for 60 years.

Sadie Sadie married lady for 48 years.

A most thankful mom for 44 years.

A grateful grandmother for 6 years.

A country gal for 4-1/2 years.

Thanking the LORD for His steadfast love to me and my family. The best eternal gift I have received is my redemption with so many added blessings through the years some in the form of trials. Many sweet earthly gifts, too. Pressing on and looking to my future hope.

“Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever, Amen.” Jude 1:24

We had a lot of rain on Monday and today we might get some sunshine breaking through. That will be nice for our day in Spokane for shopping and eating at a new spot to us.

  1. Happy Birthday, Ellen! The collages are wonderful. You and your siblings were your parents’ pride and joy. Of course, they loved The Lord and counted Him as their greatest treasure just as you do. It is very obvious that your family is well loved. (Loved the hairstyle review. So fun!)

    I am happy to know that spring may be arriving in your corner. We are expecting a
    blizzard today in mine. 😏


  2. What a heritage you have received and what a legacy you will leave, Ellen! Your faith shines through with your words and your deeds!
    Happy birthday 💐 and may the Lord shower you with many blessings in the coming year! 🙌

  3. Happy Birthday, Ellen!

    I turn 70 this year and your photos bring back memories of hair and fashion, marriage and motherhood, and precious grandparenthood. We have been truly blessed in our lives.

  4. What fun to scroll through the years with you.. Thanks for sharing all these pictures with us. Happy birthday Ellen. May you continue to enjoy many more years walking alongside your Savior!

  5. A birthday is a great time to look back and see God’s hand in your life. He has been so faithful and good. I hope you had a great day in Spokane. Did you get to see The Jesus Revolution?

    • Anneliese, we did get to see the movie. Brought back some memories. The acting was very good. It would be good to sit down and share more thoughts…
