Psalm 71:18 - Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come.
What is old age? Is it something to dread and be afraid of? It doesn’t have to be. Age can be a time of discovering new parts of yourself; gaining wisdom through life experiences. Maybe there’s something that you’ve wanted to do your whole life, but your job and raising your children may have not allowed you to. Now that you are older, and your children are out on their own, you’re in a different season of life. Take hold of that lifelong dream and go for it. I believe your children will admire you for having the courage to do so. Do you struggle with getting older? Are you afraid of the changes it will bring? I’d love to hear from you.
