“Growing old is not so bad when you consider the alternative.”
~ Maurice Chevalier ~
What is the alternative to aging? Not to change! To stay rooted in adolescence, youth, middle age, or whatever age and refuse to Grow. Not to age is not to live, experience, or grow spiritually.
An aspect of age for which I am grateful is comparison. Today I am able to look at the past and see the benefits of the present. Growth is measurable only through the tunnel of age. I suppose my Fear of age is my basic fear of the unknown, fear of unmanageability and powerlessness.
These words remind me of the spiritual program that teaches me to confidently place my life in the loving arms of God. If I am responsible in life, I will be responsible at any age.
Teach me to use the spiritual perspective that comes with the gift of age.
