This morning while at my desk, I began pondering “age” and thought about how we are bombarded with “age-related” issues, diseases and appearances.  One cannot turn on television, open a magazine or newspaper, or attend a movie without seeing how the world views “age”.  By living like that (or existing) one becomes self-absorbed with appearances and aches and pains from  his or her body.

My prayer each day is to rise above the human thought of all the advertisements of happiness if one looks a certain way or uses a certain product.  Focus on God, not the human body!

Another verse from a hymn comes to mind.

“Know, O child, thy full salvation;

Rise o’er sin and fear and care;

Joy to find, in every station,

Something still to do, or bear.”
