Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

young as your hope...

young as your hope

Yesterday I turned 67...
a reminder that I am getting old.

However, I am not giving up.
Lots of dreams to fulfill
and projects to complete.

Nobody grows old merely
by living a number of years.
We grow old by deserting our ideals.
Years may wrinkle the skin,
but to give up enthusiasm
wrinkles the soul.”

- Samuel Ullman

“You are as young as your faith,
as old as your doubt;
as young as your self-confidence,
as old as your fear;
as young as your hope,
as old as your despair.

- Douglas MacArthur
