Some days you're the Bull..

And some days you're the rider.

Get back up, dust yourself off, & try again tomorrow.

If you have a body...

You are an athlete.

What are YOU doing to stay active?

(At 100 years old, Robert Marchand established a centenarian record for the fastest 100 kilometers by bicycle. He set the record of 4:17:27, with an average speed of slightly more than 23 kph).

Dear God,

I am so afraid to open my clenched fists!
Who will I be when I have nothing left to hold on to?
Who will I be when I stand before you with empty hands?
Please help me to gradually open my hands
and to discover that I am not what I own,
but what you want to give me. (HNouwen)

We are as sick as we are secret

We are as healthy & whole as we are open & honest with ourselves & with others.

We must become holy not because we want to feel holy but because Christ must be able to live his life fully in us. MTheresa

By the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:26)
In harmony with the Word of God (John 15:7)

With praise for the answer (Philippians 4:6)

Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years.

People grow old only by deserting their ideals.
Years wrinkle the skin but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

Worry, doubt, self-distrust, fear and despair . . .
these are the quick equivalents of the
long years that bow the head and turn
the growing spirit back to dust.

Whether 70 or 16, there is, in every being’s heart the love of
wonder, the sweet amazement of the stars, and the star-like
things and thoughts, the undaunted challenge of events,
the unfailing childlike appetite for “What Next?”

You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt,
as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear,
as young as your hope, as old as your despair.

So long as your heart receives messages of
beauty, cheer, courage, grandeur and power from
the earth, from man and from the Infinite, so long are you young.

When all the wires are down, and all the
central places of your heart are covered with
the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism,
then, and only then, are you grown old indeed,
and may God have mercy on your soul. DMacArthur

So many of us are old before our time...

In fact, I have come to believe that "oldness" is not a matter of age at all. It's a condition of the mind. I know some young adults who have geriatric attitudes while still in their middle twenties. And I know people in their forties who have stopped enjoying life and are not growing intellectually or spiritually. Some of my friends who are in their fifties act grim and tray. On the other hand, I know some chronologically older people who have a youthful vibrancy about them. They may be in the winter season by age, but they have never lost the spring of enthusiasm in their hearts. LOgilvie

In a dysfunctional church, what happens at church should stay at church.

In a healthy church what happens at church doesn't stay at church!
