Celebrating the Class of ’59 – From Diapers to Depends and Beyond

submitted by Blanche Shows

God certainly knew what he was doing when he assembled the babies of 1941. He greatly blessed us with wonderful parents, a delightful prosperous and safe place to live, and a proper education provided by teachers and administrative staff who genuinely cared about every one of us.

He gave us churches that were filled to the brim nearly every Sunday. One of the most special gifts the Good Lord gave us is the relationships we have held dear to our hearts for more than 3/4 of a century.  We are part of the Blessed generation who lived, loved, and for some already have and others will pass on to greener pastures.

We were blessed to witness our children, grand-children and even some great-great-grandchildren being born. We have done out part to contribute to the growth of the greatest nation on the planet. We can only pray to our GOD that our descendants grow up and enjoy a life half as good as the time we’ve spent on this earth.

I think most of you will agree with me. We grew up with three families. Our own personal family, our church family, and our school family. Each has played an important part in the shaping up into the people we are today.

I have this feeling that through is good and infinite wisdom, God will allow us 59’ers to continue to get together when we all get to heaven. I also believe we will all get to heaven. When our time comes.
May God continue to bless us all and may he continue to bless this great land he gave us to call our own.
