beach sceneAbout six years ago I took my son shopping for a new dress shirt while he was in college. On our way to the checkout lane, I spotted a pair of cotton floral pajamas, paused, and raised the price tag for a look.

Clearly horrified, my son interjected, “No, Mom! Just NO! Those say you’ve given up on life and moved to Florida!”

Truly this happened.

Midlife, later in life — It’s not time to sit back, be content with past accomplishments, and let others take over with the business, risks, and adventures of life.

As I wrap up part 1 of Sophie Hudson’s Giddy Up, Eunice, consider this quote from chapter 4.

Elizabeth’s life is a beautiful reminder that God continues to do new things in and through us no matter what our age happens to be.

Some days I can’t imagine there will be anything more important or fulfilling than rearing my children. However, I want to make room for new adventures with God, believing that my best days could still be ahead of me.
