When do you think people claim to be the happiest in their lives? As a child? 20s & 30s? Surprisingly the older that we get the happier that we generally feel. Perhaps there is a sense of calm and understanding the closer that we get to the end of our time on earth. The understanding that we will soon. Join God in heaven who has not forgotten us no matter our age. He will carry us when we need him sustaining us on the oath to heaven. Take your rest my love no more suffering. Love your loving wife, Shelia.
“So, teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
We will all die. There is no magic pill or treatment that will allow you to live longer. Remember that your time is short and decide what you won’t to do with that time. You may won’t to consider using that time to seek and serve the lord. That is the only truly lasting thing that we can do with our time. It is our best use of it, and God is glorified by it.
