You’d be amazed at how many ideas I have for this introduction during the week. So many times I think to myself, “Oh! I should talk about this on This ‘n’ That!” And then I continue on my way, destined to forget all of those brilliant ideas by Thursday evening.
So here I am. It’s Thursday evening. It’s been a long and tiring week. And I have no idea what any of those brilliant ideas were. There is only one conclusion that can be drawn from this. Clearly the time has come for me to start writing down these ideas. Then all I have to do is remember where or in what notebook they are written.
Getting old is inevitable. It happens to all of us. Benjamin Button was just a movie, after all, and none of us can climb into a time machine to recapture our youth (although I do occasionally try to recapture mine by listening to good ol’ 80s bubblegum pop now and then). And while age brings with it plenty of drawbacks, so too does it bring wisdom and experience. These two are crucial as we go through life, and we would all do well to mind that we do not dismiss the thoughts and input of our elders.
The glory of young men is their strength,Proverbs 20:29
but the splendor of old men is their gray hair.
Yep, that’s the verse everyone clings to with the emergence of each new gray hair! Now, what was I going to do next? Oh yes, I almost forgot—here’s your week in review (kind of):
- On D-Day and God’s sovereignty.
- This has to stop.
- Because sometimes predestination seems confusing.
- My eyelid has been twitching for about 3 weeks now, and I found this article on the subject humorous.
- Here’s your weekly dose of adorable.
- Yep, that’s our God.
- It’s often so much more than “just a note.”
- I haven’t read this yet but it looked interesting (anything about aseity has to be interesting, right?) so I thought I’d pass it along.
- On the women who helped shape John Bunyan’s life.
- “Christians are notorious for following the whims of the culture.” Sadly, yes.
In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.John Bunyan
