A couple of verses from a Psalm about growing older. Who among us isn't older today than we were yesterday?*

Psalm 71:18-21 (NIV)

 "Even when I am old and gray,
       do not forsake me, O God,
       till I declare your power to the next generation,
       your might to all who are to come.

 Your righteousness reaches to the skies, O God,
       you who have done great things.
       Who, O God, is like you?

 Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter,
       you will restore my life again;
       from the depths of the earth
       you will again bring me up.

 You will increase my honor
       and comfort me once again."

Bible Commentary:  Solomon (writer of this Psalm) wrote that the glory of old people is their experience (Proverbs 20:29). A person is never too old to serve God, never too old to pray. Though age may stop us from certain physical activities, it need not end our desire to tell others (especially children, grandchildren) about all we have seen God do in the many years we have lived.

* There is no correlation between this KK and the fact that my 'younger' sister turns 63 today. Happy Birthday, Amy!
