I don’t know if any of you are a fan of Debbie Reynolds, but as a little girl I thought she was pretty marvelous. I was mesmerized by Singin’ in the Rain and pretty much hoped my true love would drop out of the sky someday after watching Tammy and the Bachelor. After I grew up and gave up on any attempt at a claim to fame, I really lost track of her until the other day when my niece re-posted one of her cute sayings from her Facebook page, called “Oh So ShAbBy Sayings by Debbie.” I was so charmed that I looked through her site and picked out a few favorites to share with you. Did you know that Debbie Reynolds is now in her 80′s and still starring in movies? She first signeda contract at age 16 and has had an active career spanning more than six decades. In fact, she played the role of a grandma in One for the Money (which I haven’t seen) that just came out in 2012! I’m impressed. I’ve also enjoyed looking at her Facebook page, and I appreciated her sense ofhumor and what she shares. Way to go, Debbie! Wouldn’t you love to have such along and healthy life? I’d definitely like to be able to be singin’ in the rain at 80!
I don’t really know anything about Debbie Reynold’s personal life…what she believes or what she’s like today. If you do, I’d love to hear about it, so please share! However, I do know that God sometimes blesses those who love him with long life:
“Because he loves me, says the LORD, I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” (Psalm 91:14-16)
