Don't let the past remind us of what we are not now.
Look to your past as a source of happiness and fond memories. Don't spoil the present with the fact that growing older does not allow you to run as fast, jump as high or even think and remember as well as you used to. Ask for God's on-going help to mature gracefully and enjoy every phase of your life.
The righteous flourish like the palm tree and grow like a cedar in Lebanon. They are planted in the house of the Lord; they flourish in the courts of our God. They still bear fruit in old age; they are ever full of sap and green.
