I was thinking back to my first sign of aging. I used to have a beard most of the year. Now I only grow it in the winter months. One day I noticed that there was something white under my lips. I thought it was just toothpaste. I took a wet cloth and wiped it off and it seemed to be darker again. When I washed up the next morning, the white was back and I hadn’t brushed my teeth yet! Now most of my beard is gray or white instead of my dark brown. I just looked at some photographs from when my daughter was born and through her toddler years. I sure don’t look the same as back then!
The next thing I noticed is that I was having a difficult time putting my socks on while standing up. Now I can’t do it at all. Then most of my hair turned gray. Well, I guess it’s downhill from now on. But it does pay to follow the Lord’s health plan that is prescribed in His Word. Even though I don’t look the same or am as limber as I used to be, the best way to live is to trust in the Lord with all your being. It pays now and later with eternal life with God!
