Old Age

Old age is a blessed time. It gives us leisure to put off our earthly garments one by one and dress ourselves for heaven. —Ray Palmer

I came across this quote not too long ago. It made me feel good. I haven’t yet felt that getting old is a bad thing — although sometimes my body wants to do things it did when it was 30 and the next day my bones say “What did you do that for?”  (laughing)

I’m looking forward to the day when there will be no more tears, no more sweating, no more thorns on roses, no more conflict. I’m looking forward to the day when people won’t feel anger in their hearts or jealousy or lust or bitterness.

I’m looking forward to heaven.

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:3-5
