Monday Memories: Embracing Our Golden Years

From Proverbs 16:31:  “Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life.”

Watching television, what is so wrong?

Proclaiming vitality, glowing youth

Idolizing outward beauty and more

Turning down the chatter, looking for truth


Savoring this life’s fertile, golden years

Knocking at the door, God’s Word always clear

Finding our inner beauty, filled with love

Embracing the later years, without fear


Assuring us of our Lord’s divine plan

Receiving far more than we can afford

Propelling us forward, with Jesus near

Guiding our daily walk, by His accord


Gaining beauty from our relationships

Discovering family love each day

Restoring our energy with these gifts

Growing closer to our Lord as we pray


Sharing our wisdom and experience

Bringing opportunities, we also grow

Living as role models in God’s spirit

Opening new pages, as blessings flow

From American pastor, Harry Emerson Fosdick:  “It is magnificent to grow old, if one keeps young.”

  1. Aw, the inner beauty that comes only from God! I’m still a “baby” to some (nearly 52), but “old” to younger ones. I’m not much into fashion but just making sure I’m clothed in the goodness of Christ (and my t-shirts and flannel!). My Dad said one has to be “young and stupid to become old and wise!” Oh my! I think aging is a beautiful process!

  2. Ah yes, so true … we all try to “… live as role models in God’s spirit… Opening new pages, as blessings flow.” We are blessed indeed and responsible for passing it on. Thank you for doing so!
