You don’t get older, you get better. (Shirley Bassey, Welsh singer)

Here’s a list of ideas to help us get better as we get older: Live realistically. Give generously. Adapt willingly. Trust fearlessly. Can we do all that? Certainly not unless we pay attention and take positive steps to improve our attitudes and behavior. Aging is often difficult with the loss of strength and flexibility, but we can make the choice to be positive and pursue healthy habits.

But the godly will flourish like palm trees . . . They flourish in the courts of our God. Even in old age they will still produce fruit; they will remain vital and green. (Psalm 92:12-14)
