“Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.” (Isaiah 46:4)

At some point, getting older was no longer fun. Ten was that point for me. I am many times that now. Here is an accurate depiction of my peer group: You sleep with your face crammed into a pillow for enough years and one morning a wrinkle appears on your face and announces back to you from the mirror, “It is now easier to remain the way I am than to keep reforming into my unwrinkled state, just so you know.”

Like I say, aging is no fun. But it does have its good points, which I always make sure to remind my reflection: “I’m closer to Heaven than when I began, just so you know.”

I hope this encourages you to embrace the advantages of aging today.
