Getting older is inevitable. We cannot escape advancing years. The wrinkles will arrive sooner or later! How good it is to be reminded in God's word that outwardly we are fading away, but our inward man is renewed day by day (II Cor. 4:16) Old age is proof that we have stood the test of time and endured the years that God has allowed us on this earth. It is good for us to be reminded of our youth and the lessons we learned along life's pathway. We should be wiser, more mellow, have a sweeter spirit, and face our tomorrows with hope and confidence and a deeper joy.
Aging is a blessing from God. Each day is another day to praise Him and love others. So happy birthday, Dick! Welcome to the wonderful world of senior citizenship and may God bless your remaining years as you serve Him!
I love you!
