“How old are you?” Do you ever get that question? What does age mean to you? Our society is consumed with age and their idea of age! There are more plastic surgeries in these times than ever! Have you ever considered why they call it ‘plastic’ surgery? 🙂
What is ‘age’ anyway? When you reach a certain age, people look at you differently! That certain age is ‘retirement age’, ‘senior citizen age’, etc. Have you ever wondered what the term elderly refers too? You may see on a sign on the highway or on the news where an elderly person is missing! What does this mean, what do they consider elderly? Now here is a definition of old age:
“Old age (also referred to as one’s eld) consists of ages nearing or surpassing the average life span of human beings, and thus the end of the human life cycle. Euphemisms and terms for old people include seniors (American usage), senior citizens (British and American usage) and the elderly. Old people have limited regenerative abilities and are more prone to disease, syndromes, and sickness than other adults. The boundary between middle age and old age cannot be defined exactly because it does not have the same meaning in all societies. People can be considered old because of certain changes in their activities or social roles. Examples: people may be considered old when they become grandparents, or when they begin to do less or different work—retirement.” Now isn’t this interesting? 🙂
Okay, I am a MiMi (grandmother) of 5 wonderful Granddarlings! I no longer have to work in ‘Corporate America’, Thank God, and I love and enjoy life to it’s fullest! I have not been to a doctor in 20+ years; I take no medicine…not even aspirin..get no ‘flu vaccinations, and don’t get sick! I walk and live in DIVINE HEALTH!
I learned a long time ago that Jesus took on Himself all of my sicknesses, diseases, infirmities and sins when He went to the cross! I also learned that stress and worry are not from God but from satan! Worry and stress, which is brought about by worry, can and do bring on all kinds of sickness and disease! Jesus took on my sickness so why would I want to take it back? I once was a worrier…about everything including being ‘too happy’! Then I learned that God is my Source for every need, desire and want…not man and certainly not me! I learned to TRUST Him with everything in my life and I have found total peace, happiness, joy and fulfillment! I love life and living it 100%!
Now, back to ‘age’! We are a spirit that lives in a housing called a body! Your spirit (the real you) does not age…it matures, not ages! Your body, the housing, is what ages, wrinkles, shrivels and dries up. If you feed your body with nutritious foods, keep it hydrated with plenty of water and keep it strong and agile with plenty of movement, you will slow down the ‘aging’ process of your body! Have you ever felt like you were no older than 20 or 21, only to look in the mirror and be shocked? 🙂 Well, this is because the real you, your spirit is young…mature (hopefully) but young! Ever heard the saying, ‘you’re only as old as you feel’? Well, that is true! Fortunately, I come from a family of young feeling, acting, living people! I remember my Nana at the age of 90 looking in the mirror and saying, ‘good gosh!’ When I asked her what was wrong she said ‘look at all those wrinkles’! She was 90 years young and had less wrinkles than most people at 70! 🙂 If you listen to the ‘world’ it will make you ‘old’! Listen to your spirit, the real you, enjoy life…every minute of it…and most importantly get to know God intimately and learn to TRUST Him with every thing in your life! He knows your needs before you do and He loves you unconditionally! Happy long healthy life to all of you! ♡
Love and Blessings, ~Judy♡~
