Now that was a laugh-out-louder. And it put a smile on my face for the whole day. Because, believe it or not, you reach a point in life when the words “you don’t look a day over 45!” bring cheer to your heart.
And I’ve reached that point.
So my heart was cheered.
I’m not so sure about the “old and wheezy” part, but I’ll focus on the second half of the sentence.
Which is a great spiritual lesson: wishful thinking makes for a happy life.
No, wait, that’s not it.
Pardon me while I have a senior moment.
Oh yes, now I remember: the Bible says: “Do not give heed to all the things that men say, lest you hear your servant cursing you; your heart knows that many times you have yourself cursed others.” (Ecclesiastes 7: 21-22)
I wish it hadn’t taken me as many years as it has to recognize the wisdom in those words, but I guess you’re never too old and wheezy to learn something new!
