This is something which I shared at our Marys & Marthas meeting last week. If you are really young, copy it and save it for later.
Now for the rest of us: it is for us who are turning the pages of the calendar. And I might be more interested in this topic, as I add another year on Friday.......and continue my march on into the life of a senior citizen!
"I will keep on expecting you to help me.
I praise you more and more.
I cannot count the times
when you have faithfully rescued me from danger.
I will tell everyone how good you are,
and of your constant daily care.
I walk in the strength of the Lord God.
I tell everyone that you alone are just and good.
you have helped me from my earliest childhood--
and I have constantly testified to others of the wonderful things you do.
And now that I am old and gray,
don't forsake me.
Give me time to tell this new generation
(and their children too)
about all you mighty miracles."
~ Psalm 71:14-18 LB
"Solomon wrote that the glory of old people is their experience
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
about all we have seen God do
in the many years we've lived."
