This month I turn 65. Wow. I remember when my parents were 65 and now it’s my turn. Did I ever think about these years when I was 25 or even 45? I don’t know about you but, I didn’t. Maybe I didn’t really believe I was going to live to see 65 or maybe I didn’t want to think about what 65 could actually look like. Well, let me tell you……signing the papers for Medicare was great but a reality check for me.
Now that I am living these years I can honestly say they are ……. not what I expected and yet they are …… more than I expected and also they are …….. totally up to me to make them as satisfying and as happy as I want them to be.
So, in these “sunset” years I have decided to live them to the fullest with God in the middle directing my footsteps as He has my whole life. Have you ever noticed that sunset pictures look a lot like sunrise pictures? If you aren’t aware of the location of the picture it is really difficult to tell them apart.
So, why can’t my “sunset” years be as productive as my “sunrise” years? Well, the answer to that question is entirely up to me. I just have to realize I might be in a different location …. like on the beach enjoying the sunset!
