Mother Time

Mother Time

Someone once said

Old is

When you can’t find your glasses

When you receive your invitation to join AARP

When you cash your first Social Security check

When you kiss your first grandchild

When you apply for Medicare

When you need a knee replacement

When you forget how old you are

When your family won’t let you renew your driver’s license

When you’ve had more colonoscopies than you can count

When your teeth fall out



I say

Old is

When I no longer find beauty in God’s creation

I forget to say thank you

Bitterness consumes me

Children bother me

People annoy me

Animals shun me

Morning, noon, and night I complain

I think I am always right

I no longer pray

read my Bible

or care




Dear Lord,

Before I am old,

Spare my friends

My family

My children

Call me home

So I may





Help me

To stay young


Bonds that never break

Belly ache laughter

Compassion like Jesus


Hope that endures


Forgiveness times seventy

Sacrifice beyond measure

Love for You

As ageless as

Mother Time

  We Are Adopted

We Are Adopted
God is our heavenly Father
He sacrificed His only Son
 of His own nature
to purchase us
to redeem us
with His life-giving blood
God was under no obligation to adopt us
He gave us Himself 
but chose to become one of us
We have an inheritance
This is not our home
God will give us new names in heaven
God sees what we can become, not what we are now
 God has a plan and a purpose for our lives
There is no other person just like you or me
What an awesome thought that the Creator of the universe would want to be called "Abba Father"
by such insignificant creatures as us.
Somehow, though, in our insignificance, we portray the image of the living God
What a paradox
