THINGS NOBODY TOLD ME ABOUT GROWING OLD

2 Corinthians 4:16-17 “That is why we never give up. Our physical body is becoming older and weaker, but our spirit inside us is made new every day. We have small troubles for a while now, but these troubles are helping us gain an eternal glory. That eternal glory is much greater than our troubles.” .
  1. Nobody said it would be this difficult and sometimes painful to just to get dressed in the morning.
Nobody explained that one third of my income would be spent on doctors, medications, and supplements. And that was after the insurance had paid.
I don’t recall anyone explaining about the mysterious “traveling” pain that would move from body part to body part.
There are bits and pieces of me missing more everyday, hair, teeth, eyesight, hearing, and memory.
Speaking of memory, there’s the panic when I forget something … did I just forget or is it dementia?

Prayer

In the midst of all that troubles us in this live, we believe as did Paul when he wrote, “That eternal glory is much greater than our troubles. Thank you for your promise of life unending. Amen. Also visit my other blogs
