We all celebrate our birthdays in different ways. Mine was just a few months ago and I turned the big 56! That wasn’t so much of a big deal, after all, I get to take advantage of senior discounts now! My 50th birthday was a bigger deal for me so I decided to throw myself a celebrate life party with all of my friends and family. We had such a great time! But with each passing birthdayI know that I’m getting older by how I feel . I can feel it in my bones, and I can see it in the mirror. With each passing year it seems that I always make promises that I will do something different this year. No matter how hard I try, I can’t stop the aging process. Someone recently wrote that there was an area that we often neglect evaluating as we physically get older. I can look in a mirror and critique my outward appearances as signs of getting older and hopefully more mature but do I look at my spiritual life to see if I’ve grown in the past year. Have I at least taken care of my spiritual self as much as I have my physical self? Have I grown spiritually? What can I do this next year to make my spiritual life grow. There is a song by Lynda Randle that says “I want to get so close to Him that there is no big change on that day when He calls my name”. This next year I want to see as many but hopefully more changes and growth in my spiritual life than in my physical life! What do you think?
