It happens to all of us, unless we die while we’re still young. Today, extreme old age is to be in your 80’s or older. Many people are working well into their 70’s, as I will unless the Lord takes me home. We’re living healthier longer if we take care of business during our active years. Still there are issues that arise with the onset of time, and none of us are immune.
There was a picture similar to this one hanging in the hallway of the nursing home my mom lived in for the last couple of years of her life. I love it. There is beauty in every life stage, especially if it is a life well-lived. The grace and wisdom that comes with age replaces the fresh-faced beauty of youth when God is the moving influence in one’s life.
I’ll be talking about all sorts of things, from the medical to the emotional, financial, and relationship issues.
Please pray for wisdom for me as I research and write.
