AGING DOESN’T HAVE TO MEAN DEATH

Lots of people look at age as a sign of weakness, deterioration and imminent death. Some cultures place age in a special category because of the wisdom a person has acquired in his life.
In America, we tend to admire young, healthy and strong people or those with perfect teeth, faces and general good looks. We’re attracted to those with great personalities or a good sense of humor.  We tend to latch on to the achievers in society.
Unfortunately as we get old, our value sometimes is lessened because we don’t look the same or sound the same. We become crankier. We have less patience. We suffer physical ailments that keep us from doing the things we used to enjoy.  The inactivity makes us even more addled. We wonder how the world ever got the way it did. In a way, we’ve become our grandparents.
I am so grateful that God doesn’t look at us any differently when we age. He only looks at our hearts and sees what Jesus has done to take away our ugliness. As we grow older, we should never stop growing in the Lord. His Word is a constant treasure of comfort, peace, knowledge and wisdom.
Thank you, Lord for looking beyond my sagging body, my impatience, my weaknesses, and putting me in a special place of honor in your kingdom.  Amen

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.
