As middle age rapidly approaches, I’m sometimes tempted to think that the best part of my life is behind me. Now and then, I spend too much time looking in the rear view mirror, so to speak, at past mistakes and regrets. Occasionally, I chide myself, “At this age, I should have it all together by now. I should have all my ducks in a row, but I don’t even know where they all are!”
But I take heart when I read promises like Proverbs 4:18 (below), and I smile and say, “Amen!” And I toss the mailings from AARP in the garbage can. Until there’s an organization called the AABGP, American Association of Bright and Glowing Persons, I think I’ll pass.
“The ways of right-living people glow with light; the longer they live, the brighter they shine.”—PROVERBS 4:18
