Crown of splendour

Someone once said there are four ages of man: the first is when you believe in Santa Claus, the second is when you don’t believe in Santa Claus, the third is when you are Santa Claus and the fourth is when you look like Santa Claus. But maybe we shouldn’t get so hung up on age and what can and can’t be done. Golda Meir was seventy one when she became Prime Minister of Israel whereas William Pitt the Younger was only twenty four when he became Prime Minister of Great Britain. George Bernard Shaw was ninety four when one of his plays was first produced but Mozart was only seven when his first composition was published.
The point is age has little to do with achievement for each stage of life brings its own challenge. We need to remember that the Bible says: ‘Grey hair is a crown of splendour.’
