Aging I

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. (Mark Twain)

For almost all of our adult life, we never felt our age. We always thought we looked and acted younger than the calendar said we were. That all changed after a bout with Covid-19. We were not nearly as seriously ill as many others, and we thank God for that. But the sad aftermath is, we have begun to feel our more than eight decades. So, we’re reminded of the words of wise Solomon:

Remember [God] before. . . you drag along without energy like a dying grasshopper. . . Remember him before you near the grave. . . Yes, remember your Creator now. (Ecclesiastes 12:5, 6)
