On her 97th birthday, a British lady received many letters and cards of congratulations, including one from the prime minister congratulating her on her 107th birthday.
The next year as her birthday approached, she was asked by a casual acquaintance how old she’d be.
“I really don’t know,” she replied. “I haven’t heard from the government yet.”
My doctor says I have the body of a 16-year old … dog.
Thought for the day
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens . . . a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance” Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4 NIV
Sometimes the only appropriate, logical response to life is grief. The Bible says you are to grieve over your losses, including your disappointments, your sin, the suffering in the world, and your friends who are spiritually lost. God doesn’t expect you to be happy all the time. In fact, he wants you to be intentional in your grief.
