On Getting Older

I find it hard to believe, but today I turned sixty years of age. It makes me wonder where all that time has gone. And it puts into perspective one’s own mortality. This  can be downright depressing if I look at it incorrectly. This can include such things as seeing ageing as being something that involves physical decay and eventual death.

Or is ageing seen as something to be celebrated and accepted as a normal part of life, which of course it is. This is the course that I choose to follow and celebrate my ageing. Although it would be easy to look at ageing as something to be dreaded, even feared, I choose not too, for getting older is part of our maturing and nurturing process and brings us closer to the time for us to go home to the Lord. So old goathood is something to look forward to, for sure!

About faithfullyhis

My name is Charles Quail and I am a retired Baptist pastor who lives in Dunnville,a small town southeast of Hamilton, Ontario. I also write a weekly column for our local newspaper, The Sachem. It is a column that I have been writing for about eight years. I am married and have two grown daughters. My best buddy was my dog Max, who is now chasing bunny rabbits in sky. I miss him terribly. My reason for wanting to write a blog is friends have told me that this is the next logical step in my writing career. My hope and prayer is that many will be both challenged and blessed by what I write.
