    Will you ever retire? Do you already have plans?

    What, am I the only person who would like to so something different when I retire from being a mother? I estimate that I only have about 12 years before "enforced" retirement and/or grandmotherhood.

    And the way T's job is set up, he can retire at any age after 25 years. He only has about 6 years to go. He is certainly considering using this as an opportunity to do look into other career type things.

    Of course what we've really always thought about most was my finding a field of interest and finishing my degree so when he retires, I can begin a career of my own(complete with my own retirement plan). I interupted my education/career when the kids came along.

    Okay, okay, I should have said active motherhood. I do expect them to one day move out of my home and begin families of their own......

    That is what I'm supposed to be raising them for isn't it???????

    No retirement until we get to the promised land.

    Many of God's people were not called to service until they were 80 years, even though God knew them before they were born.

    Most of God's servants died while in service to Him--many were martyred.

    No retirement in this world--in secular job pursuits perhaps, but not the Lord's Army.

    Selah,

    Bro. James

    P.S. The poll question #1 asks two questions ???

    Well, I guess most agree that financial security is not one of the perks of being a pastor.

    Ben: I wanted to see that movie because I like Jack Nicholson, but I hear it has an awful lot of bad language in it so I haven't seen it.

    MK: You're not changing careers when you go from mother to mother-in-law to grandmother.

    Same game - just different rules... [​IMG]

    I genuinley cannot recall the language used in the film, so you would have to go by the ratings by the U.S classification system. Just out of interest, National Treasure is a clean film with no bad language and quite a surprise to me! Considering what usually comes out on mainstream cinema.

    We watched National Treasure a couple of weeks ago and it is a fine movie!

    We also liked Racing Stripes.

    Unfortunately because of health issues I was granted disability retirement a little over a month ago.
    At age 40 that was a little unsettling but I know God is in control.
    I had set some money aside via a tax deferred plan but had only done that a few years.

    I am 48 and plan to work 7 more years.
    My plan is to attend a lot of
    bluegrass Festivals and do some shade tree picking on my 8 string instrument.

    365 days after I am eligible to retire, I will have been retired one full year. :D

    Hey, atestring = 8 string...I get it. If you had been in my den, you could have actually seen the little light bulb go off over my head. [​IMG]

    And here I've been pronouncing it "a test ring" this whole time! [​IMG] No wonder I couldn't figure out what it meant.
