n’t old age great? You have more time to yourself. You don’t
need to drag yourself out of bed and rush to work. You have
more discretionary income. You can do life at your own pace.

can slow down and smell the roses. You get to spoil your
grandchildren and then leave and go home to a quiet house
Where do I sign on the dotted line? When do I get to apply?
Hold on, hold on. Have you considered the other half of the
equation with agedness? You ache longer and more frequent.
You cannot get done as much as before. You don’t always
remember so well. You visit the doctor more often. You face a
foe called arthritis. You can experience loneliness and
worthlessness. You find yourself in yearly routines. You lose
track of time. And you need more and more rest.

entered this world, so too did death – spiritual and physical. So
to even get to this dreaded end, we must endure the aging of
our bodies and our minds as they break down, fall apart and quit
working. This is the reality of life on earth for everyone.

His name is Jesus. He came to offer up His life and to remove
ours. He transforms our lowly earth suits into altogether new
temples. Though our days are numbered below, eternity awaits.
