Patty had a surprise birthday party this afternoon for her 70th birthday. All of our daughters, daughter in law, and a number of Patty’s friends all got picked up in this huge limousine in the church parking lot and they then went to the Olive Garden for a special birthday dinner. Patty had a great time and felt very honored and loved by the surprise. It is kind of funny that I don’t ever think of Patty as old, she doesn’t act old, and doesn’t look old, but when they said “Patty’s 70th birthday” it sounded so old. I won’t be 70 for 9 more months😀. My inspiration is Caleb in the Old Testament, in Joshua 14:10-11 he says, “Now behold, I am eighty-five years old today. I am still as strong today as I was in the day Moses sent me; as my strength was then, so my strength is now, for war and for going out and coming in.” I am zeroed in on that as my ministry goal, to Pastor until I am 85 years old, which means that I have 15 more years left. That is a long time, and I can serve the Lord and accomplish a lot in that time. A key reason that I believe that I will be around is because of the exercising that I do for my Parkinson’s. I ride my stationary bike for a full hour each a every day, and besides the benefits for Parkinson’s there are many benefits that I experience in my health from the hour a day of peddling hard. If I were declared healed of Parkinson’s I would keep on riding my stationary bike an hour every day so I could continue to experience the blessings of good health.
