Yes, I’ve ordered botox!! Why not? After what I’ve been through? My wife and I drive to the ticket area of Butchart Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia. Hinting for a discount, I ask if they offer either a senior reduction. Very nicely she says that they don’t, but would I prefer a ‘close to park’ pass so we could hobble into the gardens on our aged legs!
Then I get an invitation to my high school class ‘Our 70th Birthday Party’ bash in Florida next April. 70th? Are we really that old? To top it off, I’ve sent my photo, as requested, to the Moody Bible Institute’s Alumni Department where they will announce the publication of my daily devotional book. Sue took a number of pictures of me.
Now you know why I’ve ordered Botox. Not! Psalm 90: 10–‘The length of our days is seventy years–or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away’.
Moses says: ‘… to number our days’ (v.12). Cherish each one. Make them count. Determine to get closer to God, and we’ll find wisdom.
Pray to be satisfied and content with all the blessings the Lord has given. Not focusing on what we don’t have or what could have been. Forget rehashing all those sins we’ve confessed to God but still carry around. When He forgives, He forgives. I need to believe Him more and more. You too? Wisdom, even if a bit late, is well worth having!
For all your blessings, Lord, we thank you. Amen.
