Crowned in our
Scriptures are from the King James Bible.
Today our Lord gave me these definitions for those of us, in His body, who have matured in age:
1.) Wrinkles = Life paths
...he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Also, wrinkles = Life maps
2.) Gray hair strands = glory crowns
...and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
3.) The things on us that have "gone south" = southern hospitality
Song of Solomon 4:16
Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits.
The words "old age" are NOT, necessarily, bad terms - not according to GOD'S Word, the Holy Bible. Isaiah 53:1 asks, "Who hath believed our report?..."
And remember that GOD is old, young, and
middle-aged. We, His people, all gloriously fit. Let us sing, rejoice, and celebrate, and do as instructed in Philippians 4:11, "...for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content."
Well, I hope that you enjoyed my "southern" hospitality (laugh).
