Aging with Grace

Maybe you aren’t experiencing aging issues yet. However, instead of wondering why this or that is happening to us, we can laugh in the midst of it. We might as well. It makes the journey easier.

My friends and I, all of a ‘delicate age’, constantly joke about our age and its consequences.

Says one. “I wonder what happened to the phone. I wonder where I put my checkbook and most of all; I wonder how I got this extra 20 pounds.”

“It’s the air here,” quips another. “We breathe in calories and exhale bone density.”

Another gal told me that she could ignore her age except when she goes clothes shopping. “Something is happening to my body,” she cries. I am the same weight but parts of me have moved to other sections of the rest of me!

Some of us will notice aging more than others. We might often hear of friends in poor health and others who pass on. It’s just part of life. It’s less painful when we are sure that those loved ones will meet us in heaven someday.

King Solomon said this.  What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.  (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

And always we have this promise. God, you have done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. (From Psalm 126:3)
