Common Ailments
by PamFord Davis

During visits with general practitioners elderly patients share their latest symptoms. It is hard to accept the rapid decline in health we often see. Physically our "want to" and "can do" seem to be parting company! No doctor has a simple answer or magic pill. Our bodies are only temporary and they wear out.

In Psalms David painted a vivid picture. "My heart pants, (palpitations and irregular heart beat) my strength fails me; (I just can't walk up that flight of stairs like I used to!) As for the light of my eyes, (macular degeneration) it also has gone from me (Psalm 38:10 NKJ)."

It's not so bad:
#1: Our heart is still beating!
#2: When we can't get around like we used to it gives us more opportunities to be still and experience God's presence!
#3: We can see God even with our eyes shut!
It truly is the golden age! We can really shine!
