Even in old age they will still produce fruit.
In Illinois, citizens 87-and-older are required to take a driving test every year to keep their driver’s license. Lois Paulson passed hers with flying colors. She’s 105.
“I made up my mind I wasn’t going to sit around,” Paulson said. “Once you shift your life into ‘neutral,’ it’s hard to get back into ‘drive.’”
This centenarian keeps active with her quilting group, church involvement, and volunteer hospital work.
Hats off to all of you of ripened years. You smoothed out rough spots in the road, bequeathed a vibrant church to the next generation—and continue to be active.
You may—or may not—have Lois Paulson’s vim and vigor. Your get-up-and-go may have got-up-and-went. But even as your physical body is becoming older and weaker, your inner spirit is growing stronger every day (2 Cor 4:16).
We don’t stop learning because we grow old.
We grow old because we stop learning.
