When I first thought about writing a blog, I thought it would be about life after the nest, but empty- nesting is just another life transition. One of many we make over our lifetimes so I don’t want to limit this blog or my life by that.
I’m also part of an exclusive — though very large — club called the “Baby Boomers.” It’s great being in a group with that kind of influence. Boomers are trendsetters, market movers, and money makers, but we’re also something else — great teachers.
The more time I have on the other side of parenting, my life is changing in a way I never expected. For once, I can listen to the voice of God without trying to compartmentalize him into my busy schedule. I am free to explore new opportunities for growth and really trust God to use me for His kingdom Glory.
In this stage of life, I have value as a human being and a Christian. Through Jesus death on the cross, I am free to live for Him. I can share my faith and God’s truth boldly to influence, encourage, and lead others to the cross so they can experience the glories of true freedom from sin, and the happiness and joy that comes from serving a Mighty God.
Romans 6:18 says “Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.”
Thank you, Jesus!
