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!
