The newness of "old" age
"Old age in not when we stop growing. It is exactly the time to grow in new ways. It is the period in which we set out to make sense out of all the growing we have already done. It is the softening season when everything in us is meant to achieve its sweetest, richest, most unique self." Joan Chittester
I guess we need to take stock of who we really are after so many years of living. We are called to help in the building up of the Cosmic Christ. Nothing we do or do not do is discounted; we all have a responsibility in this evolution of the world and "old" age brings a newness, a fresh energy, at least for the things of the Spirit. Let us listen to God's heart as God listens to each of us.
