“Even until fifty and nine years had passed away.” 4 Nephi 1:6

Ann Lewis Mission.jpg4 Nephi 1:6 
And thus did the thirty and eighth year pass away, and also the thirty and ninth, and forty and first, and the forty and second, yea, even until forty and nine years had passed away, and also the fifty and first, and the fifty and second; yea, and even until fifty and nine years had passed away.

I recently read this verse in the Book of Mormon and thought, “well that just about sums up my life to this point!”  Today I stand on the outer edge of my 5th decade.  Tomorrow I’ll be 60 years old.  I can hardly comprehend the thought of it, although I’ve been trying to get used to the idea of it for the last several months.  I just haven’t been able to embrace that number.  Sixty is Old.  I am not Old.  I’m going to have to figure this one out.

    Ann – Sixty is actually still a baby. The whole secret is to stay young on the inside and take good care of the outside !

  2. I was in awe as I turned 50 this year. So much life lived. So much yet to live. Enjoy!
