Aging is a reality, ladies, we won’t have the same body, energy level, or interests moving forward on our journey. Things change, like vision, hearing, and the ability to drive by the seat of our pants. That isn’t good news – it’s fabulous news – as long as we embrace aging!
Notice anything different in the video thumbnail? Perhaps my fashionable spectacles?
I believe in celebration. My husband and I find reasons to celebrate every day. There’s always something to get pumped about. Sure, some days it takes a minute to figure out what’s worth celebrating, but those days are rare. We make a second pot of coffee and motor on…
Change is a given.
Have you noticed that things aren’t what they used to be? They’re not even where they used to be. No worries – I’m staring age directly in the kisser and laughing.
Why not? Every season has it’s purpose, its challenge, and its blessing. The world may worship youth, but I’ve tried it and like it right where I am. I love who I’m with. I love my walk with the Lord in this phase of life. I love the freedom that comes with aging.
Aging Brings New Freedoms
Aging brings freedom from worldly expectations. I know, the freedom in our knees, hips, and shoulders may not be what it once was, but that’s okay. That’s one reason why God provides the younger generation.
One thing aging doesn’t mean is freedom from God’s expectations. You’re still in the game, keep your uniform, even if it needs tailoring to suit the newer you. If you’re on the bench it’s only because you refuse to play.
Get up. Embrace today. If there’s change you can’t resist – go for it. If not, learn to make it your best friend.
Yet one day, today will be a memory. Gravity will play havoc with more body parts and my senses will be less acute than they are today. And that will be okay, too.
Imagine if Eve knew the real downside to eating forbidden fruit. Getting old isn’t for wimps. Grab your gitty-up and embrace what you have today.
Jesus has tomorrow covered.
