It’s never too late to get back on track

Pilgrimage is one of the great themes of the Bible. Our present life is not a destination, it’s a journey to a greater life. Many of us who are well into the second half of life look back on opportunities we missed and regret that it’s now too late to pick them up again. However, there is a growing movement that is asserting the very opposite. It’s never too late. I know of grandmothers who left school at 14 and are now graduating from university with honours degrees. I know of retired men, whose working lives deprived them of beauty and creativity, who are now artists and wood carvers. I know of pensioners who had forgotten what it was like to fall in love, and now stroll arm in arm with the soul mate they always wished they’d had.
The point is this: in the journey of life it’s never too late to get back on track.
