Journaling reads: I don’t think that I have ever been “afraid” of getting old. Life happens too quickly to spend a lot of time thinking about it! And, I can’t deny that life can get pretty messy, but I’ve been too blessed to be stressed about it! I try to take one day at a time and enjoy each day I am given to live, aches and pains and all! There’s comfort in knowing that this life is just a stepping stone to the eternal, heavenly home that awaits me!

Quote: Know that you are the perfect age. Each year is special and precious, for you shall only live it once. Be comfortable with growing old.
Louise Hay
2 Corinthians 4:16 ".....though my outward man is dying, my inward man is renewed day by day."

I Know Who Holds Tomorrow
Ira F. Stanphill
Verse 1
I don’t know about tomorrow;
I just live from day to day.
I don’t borrow from its sunshine
For its skies may turn to grey.
I don’t worry o’er the future,
For I know what Jesus said.
And today I’ll walk beside Him,
For He knows what lies ahead.
Many things about tomorrow
I don’t seem to understand
But I know who holds tomorrow
And I know who holds my hand.
Verse 2
Every step is getting brighter
As the golden stairs I climb;
Every burden’s getting lighter,
Every cloud is silver-lined.
There the sun is always shining,
There no tear will dim the eye;
At the ending of the rainbow
Where the mountains touch the sky.
Verse 3
I don’t know about tomorrow;
It may bring me poverty.
But the one who feeds the sparrow,
Is the one who stands by me.
And the pathway that be my portion
May be through the flame or flood;
But His presence goes before me
And I’m covered with His blood.
