Not Getting Any Younger

Days are passing.

Children are sprouting up.

You’re changing.

Life’s changing.

The world’s changing.

And there’s nothing you can do about it. But you can enjoy the process.

It’s scary and overwhelming sometimes, but beautiful.

As they say, it’s not about the destination, it’s the journey (although, in the case of life, I kinda disagree, ’cause being with our Savior will be amazing).

We don’t have to be consumed with what’s going to happen next, or where we’re attending college, or what we’ll be doing in 10 years.

And we don’t have to worry about any of it, God is in control!

I’m not saying don’t plan ahead, you should know a general idea of what you want to do or else you will have many difficulties, but life is rushing by just fine on it’s own, you don’t have to hurry it along any more.

My dad just passed a milestone on his birthday, and it’s hard to believe he turned that age. Not that it’s old, just that like ‘my how time passes’. My niece, for goodness’ sake, is going to be turning so old, it seems, in just a few weeks. And I’m going to be driving soon!

It’s all magical and exciting and horrifying all at the same time!

So enjoy each stage of life while it lasts, because you are not getting any younger! That’s not a bad thing, it’s beautiful.

“Isn’t it funny how, day by day, nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different? ~ C.S. Lewis
