This past weekend I heard a great quote:
“How old would you be, if you didn’t know how old you were?”
— Satchel Paige
Keep learning—there's more to do!
That quote got me thinking about this chapter of life that I and many of my friends are in. Are we “over the hill”, “experienced”, “done”, “waiting for the day we go home” or making our lives count? Do we have an OLD attitude or are we learning every day? Our health is, in so many ways, in His hands but our attitude is all up to us.
I am also reminded of what Max Lucado said:
“If you are still breathing, then God still has something for you to do.”
Could it be that our whole life—all of our experiences, successes, failures, both the ups and the downs, the good and the bad—was all preparation for what God wants to do through us in this chapter of our lives?
Let's finish well!
To my older (whatever that means) friends: Let’s go hard after God and let Him use us in this chapter of our lives. Because we are all still breathing!!
Have a great day and KLU! (Keep Looking Up!)
