Golden Girls

Posted on Posted in Seniors, Thanksgiving

We wish two of our sisters and elder states-ladies a very Happy & Blessed Birthday  this month. Both of these wonderful ladies celebrated an important life milestone;  Annie, as is her way, intends to roar through her 80th year while Betty dressed in gold as she celebrated her 90th surrounded by her family and friends.

Annie is bubbly,  a real “chili padi”, a firecracker, a live wire ………. you get the idea?  Her exuberance for life and her love for God bubbles over and touches all those around her.  Her passion for getting it down on the dance floor is well known.  Perhaps a little less known (cause this reporter was not anxious to make it known) is that during our church 3 km family run last year, Annie finished the race nipping at my heels.  At the finish line, I was a sweaty mess while Annie looked fresh enough to take part in a fashion photo shoot.

Betty is another lovely sister whose love for and faith in God is an inspiration to many.  She has always had a captivating cheeky side and a sense of humor that has served her well.  She was fervent in her desire to share Jesus with her friends and relatives. And if friends and family are the treasures in one’s life, she is truly rich. Her family from all round the world and her many friends gathered recently for her 90th birthday celebration with Betty appropriately dressed in gold for the occasion.

We continue to uphold both Annie and Betty to the Lord in prayer, asking for continued grace to them and blessing and thanking the Lord for their lives and testimonies.

God Bless You, Golden Girls!
