Fancying My Fabulous Fifties (Poem)

Fancying My Fabulous Fifties

[bctt tweet=”It’s my time to shine, to rep my King and touch the world. #quote” username=”edithsmusings”]

I used to think a person’s “fabulous fifties” was just a fancy term
A known expression-turned euphemism to escape unpleasant reality
I thought it ridiculous that middle age could be seen as such
I sneered at what I called the vanity that dreamt this up

I was never bothered about age, hardly took it to heart
I was busy fighting my battles, keeping the demons at bay
But the years flew past and here I am by the mercy of God
Can’t believe I’ve been around for half a century plus plus

I may have changed but it’s in a lovely way, I would say
I got a fuller figure, a wider smile, a softer approach to folks
I’m loving the Lord, trying to make what difference I can
And by His grace, I’m learning and growing as I do His will

So yes, there’s such a thing as a person’s fabulous fifties
It’s my time to shine, to rep my King and touch the world
The devil didn’t think I’d be here still, looking oh so good
But the Lord had plans and He always has the last say

All glory to Jehovah as I celebrate my birthday today
He’s been my Ebenezer, my ever-present help in trouble
He’s making my light to shine brighter with each new day
And He’s got me fancying my fabulous fifties no end

  • Happy Birthday, Edith! I have to say Yes to your poem! A softer approach to people–for sure … I guess (for me, anyway) it took that long (and there’s more chipping away to go) to soften my rough edges! Praying you have a blessed year!

    • Edith Ohaja

      Oh Dianne, I’m so honoured by your visit, and yes, the Lord continues His work in us to the glory of His holy name. I pray for God’s overflowing grace on your ministry and other endeavours in Jesus’ name.

  • Eze Valentine Chibuike

    Happy Birthday Aunty

  • Franklin Agbai

    I hear people wishing others to age gracefully. But in the lane of fifties, it’s difficult to find ageing in you. This is not because you implied it in your expression but you picture says so better. Your black eyelids are still as deep black and well trimmed as those of the teenage. Your lips still full and still retaining a single stripe that symbolise happiness; your cheeks set in slight puffs that indicate balls of laughter hidden beneath. And, lack of wrinkles and your deep black hairs prove that you are wonderfully and fearfully made. I want to believe that if queens are chosen or made by these impressions, you would lead the pack! I won’t be surprised if at sixty or more your beauty did not wane!
    Meanwhile enjoy your good gifts from God. Happy birthday!!

    • Edith Ohaja

      Awwww, this is so beautifully phrased. Thank you, Franklin. But the hair is a wig oh, Lol! May God’s blessings abound upon you and your family in Jesus’ name.

  • Okoroafor ijeoma Mary

  • Our God who fashioned mighty mountains, arranged the tides to come and go, formed the most delicate flower- decided the world needed one of you as well!! And only one- because you are unique and special. But 50?! You are not!?

    • Edith Ohaja

      Lol, April! I’m actually more than 50 and have been for a while, that’s why I can write about enjoying my 50s. Still laughing. You made my day! And thank you for your sweet words. You’re a wonderful friend and I thank God so much for you.

  • Happy birthday in arrears Aunty! I wish you the best of God’s blessings. Age with God’s grace ma’am. Sorry, this is coming late here.

  • Okoye chidi

  • Ugwu, Chinagorom Joseph

    I would have said I feel bad to have missed your birthday, but it will be against the spirit of the celebration to do so. Am sorry, however, to have missed it. As for my belated birthday wish, My Almighty God graciously bless you, your family, your career and shield you from the devilish eyes of the enemy. May you be marooned by His Mercy and engulfed by His Love, so that You will continue to experience classical upliftments in all spheres of your life. I therefore celebrate you and with You, in this remarkable moment of your life. Wishing you a terrific celebration and fabulous fifties.

    • Edith Ohaja

      Amen and Amen. I am super grateful and pray that God place you at the right place at the right time to harvest all the blessings He’s appointed for you in Jesus’ name.



  • Happy birthday in arrears ma, wullnp and may your happiness grow with each passing day through the many many birthdays that surely are ahead of you.

  • Vivian

    God is really wonderful… Even in your fifties he still keeps you pretty and lovely like you are in your early thirties.. #Smiles# I must say you are really fancying your fabulous fifties in the Lord.

  • Uba Chiemerie Jane

    Ma, I can’t believe that you are now in your fifties because you don’t look it. You look pretty, happy always and eager to always help young folks like me. God has been really good to you. As you impact the knowledge of God in others, so shall God impact more on you. I thank God for making me meet a lovely woman like you. Ma, you are really more than u can imagine.

    • Edith Ohaja

      Hi Gloria! I’m actually over 50, just didn’t write about it before. Hope you and yours have been fine. You are richly blessed, dear sis, in Jesus’ name.

    • Agnes

      Your ink has flowed through every heart that came in contact with you. You are an inspiration to us all, A mother to all and sundry. May the almighty God keep you, there are many good tidings coming your way. Amen.

  • Deacon Adigun Temitope Idealism (DATI)

    I was actually surprised the first day i set my eyes on you during my first year in UNN, having been informed then that you are 50 plus. I was expecting someone older than you and probably not as beautiful as you. I will always be happy that i met you not just as a teacher but as a mother of all.
    God bless you more and more ma.


    they say fifties is the new thirties, you’re always glowing and you’re someone i have always known to smile no matter the season. and your laughter is always joyous…Happy belated Birthday Ma…

  • Chikwado Ezeh

    According to a popular Nigerian high life singer, “let’s beg God, for us to live, grow old and grow grey hair”. this is just to tell us how wonderful, or how blessed old age is… So enjoy your old age aunty… It’s a blessing and a position everybody wishes to attain.

    • Edith Ohaja

      Whoa, hold your horses, dear fellow! I’m grateful for your good wishes but I am NOT in my old age. It’s called middle age and it can be youth if the Lord keeps you fresh. Get it? Lol!

  • 71 comments! Obviously you struck a cord! I’m far into my fabulous 60’s and fast approaching the fabulous 70’s. God is so faithful to use us at every stage of life and give us blessings along the way. Happy belated birthday!

    • Edith Ohaja

      Yes, He is, Donna! May He keep you in good health and vigour for many more decades to come in Jesus’ name.

    • Ezekiel Stanley

      Recollecting what you did today during the examination (announcing and performance) solidified my obvious reasons that the world has been blessed by an amazing person like you.

You deserve celebration today and it will never depart from you and your family. Happy birthday, Aunty Edith! Happy Birthday, my finest lecturer!
