How good were the "good ole days?" We often not only look at our surrounding world through rose colored glasses, but also the past as well. Most of us have gotten pretty well accustomed to the benefits of life today; and with close examination most would decide against a return to the good ole days.
Why do we speak so fondly of yesterday? I believe it is because we do desire the simpler life, want to be freed of the stress of the rat race. We forget that those before us also yearned for the good ole days; so it is not really a certain time period, but more of an attitude. Our children in a few years will be referring to our present time as the good ole days!
Even those in Bible days dealt with this frame of mind, "Do not say, Why is it that the former days were better than these? For it is not from wisdom that you ask about this,
(Ecclesiastes 7:10 NAS)."
We can not purchase a return trip ticket! Soon these will be the good ole days!
