Only as Old as You Feel
by PamFord Davis

"You're only as old as you feel." That's a scary thought; I'd hate to think I'm that old! Many of us have days when we feel decrepit. I frequently whine to my husband, "The old gray mare, she aint' what she used ta' be!" I'm partly to blame. The "use it or lose it" is so true; if I'm too lazy to exercise, I'm losing muscle mass, mobility and flexibility. Instead, I chose to think of myself as young and hopeful.

How would you like to be 120 years young? "Moses was 120 years old when he died; his eyes were not weak, and his vitality had not left [him] (Deuteronomy 34:7 HCS)." Yes, I do read 120 years "old" but the physical description led me to believe he did not let chronological time determine his age. He had the vision of a visionary and vitality to pursue God's purpose. I'll think young and quit counting!
