Re: Chaplains Corner
I read a story about a couple who were spending a week at a Christian camp. They had seen their children and grandchildren attend these camps every summer for years, but this was their first time to attend one. While there, they received this letter from one of their college age granddaughters:
"Dear Grandma and Grandpa,
“How are you? What do you think of camp? Do you like the speakers? I hope all is well with you. Have fun! Thinking of you with love, Janine."
Enclosed with the letter were five one-dollar bills for them to use as spending money.
That reminded me of one time we visited our daughter and her husband when they lived in Springfield Missouri. We made the trip on the motorcycle we had just bought, and enjoyed it VERY much. While there, I wanted to get a can of special motorcycle windshield cleaner, so looked up the address of the Honda dealer in Springfield, and Judy and I headed over to pick it up on the bike. Tracy wanted to drive us over in their car, but we think the bike is more fun, so we declined. While at the dealer, I looked out the window and saw Tracy and Ron's car lurking at the edge of the parking lot. They had followed us over to make sure we were safe. I told Judy and the counter man about it, and we all had quite a chuckle about how roles can become reversed as we age.
Then we went out and had a drag race with a guy in a corvette.
We beat him.
Role reversals are GREAT!
The Word of God tells us:
Psalms 71:9 (GWT);
" Do not reject me when I am old or abandon me when I lose my strength."
Proverbs 16:31 (NCV);
"Gray hair is like a crown of honor; it is earned by living a good life."
Titus 2:2-3 (KJV);
"That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;"
I pray that each one of you enjoy's the later years of your life at least as much as I am -
