“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made. Our times are in his hand who saith, ‘A whole I planned, youth shows but half; Trust God: See all, nor be afraid!” – Robert Browning
One of the sweetest things I saw on my trip to Scotland was the way elderly couples walked down the street holding hands. My mom and dad still do that at age 83 and 81. I love seeing elderly couples who are still in love.
Some don’t get to experience this because of singleness, widowhood, or divorce. I’ve been single for a very long time. I’ve been busy in my single years, but there is part of me that still longs for God to send a precious man into my life to be my friend, my companion, my love and let us grow old together side by side.
Billy Graham and his wife have been a good example of growing old together. This is what he says about aging. “When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice. Growing older with grace is possible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, the Lord Jesus Christ.”
If you are growing old with someone you love, please know that you are truly blessed.
