As we enter old age, our health needs extra care and attention if we are to continue to experience quality of life. However, no matter what care we give our bodies, they will continue to age and our health to eventually, deteriorate. I’m not afraid of dying but I do fear the process of dying. Because of the inevitability of our eventual death, I believe, that taking extra care with our spiritual health is vital. If we are spiritually depleted, we will not have the strength that we need to face our golden years. We need that power which is eternal and unseen to endure our own physical crumbling.
I am no one special. I’m just an everyday grandma with no special degrees to qualify me. I have studied the Bible for 33 years and have taught both children and adults in Sunday School. I love Jesus and I know what it is like to have my health crumble. I struggled with ill-health for most of my life. Jesus was with me during that entire struggle. He never left me no matter how dark of a future my doctors painted for me. I have faced my mortality more than once and He was right there with me. At the age of fifty-five, I am healthier than I have been in decades. I now desire to share what I have learned through my struggles with others who are now experiencing the same suffering that I was able to endure.
I am a Christian and I can only speak of, Jesus with any kind of authority. However, I don’t intend this to be a site for only Christians. All baby boomers are welcome here. Even younger wannabe boomers are invited to read and share at this website. If your views are different from mine, feel free to express them with respect and I will receive them with respect. I will never pretend to have all of the answers that you need but I am hopeful that you will be able to find the support and spiritual encouragement that you need in maintaining your own spiritual health. As you read my words, take what is useful to you and throw the rest away.
