HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHARLIE BROWN

A revised post from 10/2/14

It’s Charlie Brown’s 64th birthday today.  In 1950 he made his first appearance as a cartoon character.  Just think – he can now collect Social Security and start living the dream like all the rest of us Baby Boomers.

Chances are he will continue working – he’ll feel the pinch of the almighty dollar, but at least he can collect on is royalties – he’ll probably become totally depressed when he discovers that the red headed girl is living in a nursing home – Lucy is running for president and has a good chance of winning, in spite of her past discretions – Linus owns a factory which manufactures used security blankets in Indonesia – Schroeder is on another concert tour and being followed by teenaged groupies – Peppermint Pattie is coaching the Minnesota Twins – Sally has her own reality TV show and Snoopy has his own line of dog food and has become one of the richest dogs in America.  And they say the American dream is dead.

Life goes on.  Even the things that once amused us continue too.  Life doesn’t have to end when we reach our later years.   We all grow old and we all face changes and challenges.  Thank God for that fact each and every day.  We are getting one step closer to heaven!

Happy birthday, Charlie Brown!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
