God's plan for aging

(Tyler, TX)

Most seniors never get enough exercise. In His wisdom God decreed that seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys and other things thus doing more walking.
And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God saw there was another need. In His wisdom He made seniors lose coordination so they would drop things requiring them to bend, reach & stretch.
And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God considered the function of bladders and decided seniors would have additional calls of nature requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise.
God looked down and saw that it was good.

So if you find as you age, you are getting up and down more, remember it’s God’s will. It is all in your best interest even though you mutter under your breath.

Nine Important Facts To Remember As We Grow Older

#9 Death is the number 1 killer in the world.

#8 Life is sexually transmitted.

#7 Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

#6 Men have 2 motivations: hunger and hanky panky, and they can't tell them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich.

#5 Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.

#4 Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing.

#3 All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

#2 In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.

#1 Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers. What you do today may be a burning issue tomorrow.

choose the right

Whatever you have done in your life that was sinful, repent. Do it no more. Ask the Lord for forgiveness. Turn over a new leaf. Live a happier rest of your life, look forward to meeting the Savior, with a clear conscience. You will be blessed for eternity.

Delightful JOhn, thank you for an enjoyable read. Now how about people like mt that get plenty of exercise?
But I don't have those items happening to me yet. Maybe all the exercise is the reason why.

Just wanted to let you know that I truly appreciate your wit and only wish thoughts like yours would come to the forefront of my mind when I sit down at the computer prepared to write.

Keep up the good work. It is articles like yours that keep old fuddy duddies like me writing each day or at least several times a week.
