He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!
(Psalm 103:5 NLT)
“Are you sure you want to get her that?” asked the sales associate again. “We offer other things that you can get her.” “Yes, it’s what she wants,” I reassured her once again. For her 40th birthday, a family member had asked for a 40-year pendant charm. The sales associate was shocked that someone would ask for something that would remind them of their age, but then heard something even more shocking, “She’s not worried about her age.”
Age is just a number, people say to comfort those who are aging. But over the years, I’ve come to see that those who walk with God, are truly living up to that saying. Age isn’t a concern for them. They’re the ones who can confidently say, “He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!” They may or may not look like their age (and most of the time they don’t), but they sure don’t feel like it.
“Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.”Betty Friedan
