Everything Running Toward It’s Expiration Date

“make this present life be one of honor, integrity, quality and love!”

Youth is a time of exuberance and exploration while its father and mother becomes reflective contemplation.  Yes, I want to admit that I’ve noticed through life that getting old is no fun and our cultures promote youth and physical beauty way too much because there is money to made; the keeping youthful and fit or good looking business paradigm is a lucrative industry, and who after all wants to lose their life or newness!

But, I’ve also learned this world is a failing one with nothing escaping the ravages of time and decay, so what is there to gain in trying to hang onto this world beyond an expiration date?  No I won’t eat meat, cheese or vegetables that have exceeded their removal date and I won’t expect my own life or its current capabilities to go much beyond its built in longevity; all of which teaches me that it’s not how long we are here but how well we live while we can and what we leave as our lasting legacy to others; because what matters most for any of us is if we made some positive difference, and that our true prize awaits us in eternity!

I hope to see you all there, so make this present life be one of honor, integrity, quality and love!

  1. I like when you spoke about reflective contemplation as being part of the beauty of growing older. Western Culture fears aging, and tries to run from it, or deny it, but it we accept aging gracefully, it becomes a time of inner peace. Of course, graceful aging can only be accomplished through God’s grace. 🤗

    1. Hi sallyball8323
      Thank you very much because you refined my thoughts and did it quite nicely as I completely agree with your statement and thinking! And, I must focus on what you ended with, the grace of God, which is what ultimately will answer all of our concerns and alleviate any fears; by our trusting in Him! I do feel so much better about any difficulty or challenges ahead because I know He is always there unceasingly, if we seek Him with humility and devout supplication; to as they say, Let Go and Let God, let Him take over and all things will work out. I wish you and yours continued inner peace and happiness! God Bless You and Yours!

    1. Aw HeartMom in Christ I agree that we will meet there at the appointed time which only the Lord knows when that will be and who will be first to make it there; but the good news as I see it is we both have a great chance of making it if we remain vigilant in having faith! Dad always said, “son learn to build your faith in this life, that’s what you need most of all!” See how those Great Generation loved ones always said it right! Let’s keep the faith HeartMom and each other in our prayer’s, as there is no doubt He is listening always.
      God Bless You and Yours!
