My favorite chocolate, Dove, has a special message on every wrapper. I had one this afternoon, and the message was, "Age is but a number." It made me laugh. Because this morning, as I was combing my hair, I noticed a couple of gray hair. Oh no!!! It was a shock to me. Then I remember how old I am. Well, I should not be surprised.
I was pondering what else are the changes that the age will bring? Poor eyesight. Poor hearing. Weaker knees... and then the Alzheimer's disease. :( Well, the good thing is, while we get weaker physically, it doesn't have to be that way spiritually. It is possible that we get better and better with age.
Let us stop worrying about our physical age, it is about time that we work out for our spiritual age because it is the only thing that we have that will last forever.
