I WANNA GROW OLD!

07 Aug

I was told that you are “as old as your thoughts, and as young as your despair.”                                            

I want to live long enough to get old and at some point to have been useful.

PSALMS 116: 26 says; “Precious in the Sight of the Lord is the Death of His Saints.”   I am not the one trying to give the Lord grief. It’s simply this, I don’t want to be remembered as an old fool. I want to be remembered as a woman of character.

There was a time that if someone asked me what my plans were for old age, (since retirement was out of the question) I might have said, “I guess I will just die.” And yes I actually said this to my Godmother and she had a fit! She had me go to the Concordance and look up every word if I had to, and come back with the correct answer. After the third try to long distance Bible classes from my 91-year-old T.T,’  I found John 11:26;

“Jesus said,”AND WHOSOEVER LIVE AND BELIEVE IN ME SHALL NEVER DIE. BELIEVE THOU THIS’?

So I am going to do the best I can for as long as I can. I am going to praise God for allowing me to get up in years. And I mean in more ways than one. I am going to remember the things I use to do and strive to do the things I can do better. When someone calls me old, I am going to pray that they get there too. Did I mention, the only way to get old is to live?

Finally, I will pray not to become a Vindictive, Mad at the World old woman.
