In September I will be 76. Overall I’m fortunate to be in good health, but in the past year like an old house or used car, I’ve needed a few repairs. Cataract surgery last August, and vein surgery on a leg this May prove I need some “body work.”
A woman told me several years ago that she thought human beings were never meant to live this long.With advances in medicine those of us fortunate enough with access to medical care, can receive treatments hitherto unknown in past centuries.
There must be some meaning to living longer than most of our ancestors. God is not finished with our earthly journey here yet. As a person of faith it seems to me that as we get older, we have the potential of becoming the person God created us to be.
