Getting Older and Closer to God

I have been visiting with grandchildren lately and one of the things that interests them is the fact that my hair is turning white. The littlest one told me that it means that I will go to Heaven soon. Well, maybe she is right. Because as we age, there are outward physical signs, but there are also inner ones. I don’t want to leave earth one moment before God wants to call me home, but I do want to be ready to leave and be with Him forever. No matter where my home is, on earth or in Heaven, God will continue to be my strength. As the little one said, “It will be fine, Nanna. You get to see Jesus.” There is a lot of wisdom in little children, isn’t there?

Have a blessed day and may you feel His strength surrounding you as you go about the business of blessing others.

  1. Children have a joyful unfiltered way to put things. 🙂
    I am comforted by Isaiah 46:4-
    Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
