Revelling in the years

Henry Durbanville, in his book The Best Is Yet To Be, wrote, ‘I feel so sorry for folks who don’t like to grow old…I revel in my years. They enrich me…I would not exchange…the abiding rest of soul, the measure of wisdom I have gained from the sweet and bitter and perplexing experiences of life; nor the confirmed faith I now have in the…love of God, for all the bright and uncertain hopes and tumultuous joys of youth.’ And Robertson McQuilkin summed it up well when he wrote, ‘God planned the strength and beauty of youth to be physical. But the strength and beauty of age is spiritual. We gradually lose the strength and beauty that is temporary so that we’ll be sure to concentrate on the strength and beauty that is forever.’
