Gray – Who Me?

Friends, I’m coming to terms with the fact that I am getting older. Things that I used to do without thinking – well now, I wouldn’t think of doing them! I find that I groan when I stand up. Do you do that? Then, I stand there a few seconds before I take off walking! Goodness – when I see Aiden running around, I’m amazed at how fast he is. Was I ever that fast? I doubt it. I’ve heard that the day will come when everything that works – hurts, and everything that hurts – doesn’t work! I’m beginning to believe it. I’m beginning to feel this colder weather “in my bones!”

But, this morning while I was getting ready for work, it struck me that I’m getting gray! Now, Steve’s been “pre-maturely” gray for almost 30 years. I love his gray hair – Mine, well – not so much. Yet, I don’t want to color it. I know of some folks who have no idea what color their hair really is! But, I want to just wait and see how it turns out. The Bible praises those who make it to “old age.” Proverbs 20:29 says, “The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the gray head.” Yep, that gray hair is beautiful! God wanted Israel to know that He would always be there for them into those later years. “And even to your old age I am He; and even to gray hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.” (Isaiah 46:4)

Proverbs 16:31 says, “The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.” So, I’m not just turning gray – I’m gaining a crown! God Bless, Courtney
