The beginning of a new decade

As I approached a new decade, not just 30 or 40, or even the big 5-0, but 60 years old, I realized more than the other milestones, that life was slipping away and unless I was intentional about living life to the fullest, as God intended, I could soon be physically or mentally limited, so I set out on a new journey; a renewed outlook on the approaching empty nest (which for me is much later than most people my age) and the "happy golden years". What I didn't want to do was slip into cruise mode and coast the rest of my life. So, the idea came to me to set a goal of looking for 60 new adventures/experiences in my 60th year of life. This would hopefully keep my mind pressing on to learning new things and stepping out of my comfort zone. So for all my new readers, which are probably only (maybe) my family, and perhaps a few curious friends, I created this blogspot to log my activity and to hold me accountable.....a sort of diary. Plus, since this blogspot is a new experience for me, it counts as one of the 60 adventures. I welcome comments and suggestions, and most of all, through all of this, I am praying God will be honored and that my life would be a fragrant aroma to those I meet. I really don't want this to be all about's about waking up each day and seeing what God has on His agenda for me and that my mind would be fresh and open to new things.
Welcome to my blogspot and thanks for reading. I love you all very much!! Thanks for your support of this old dog trying to learn new tricks!!
