I was very taken with a passage written by Doris Grumbach (American Writer) on growing old with grace. She encapsulated something wonderful about God and faith too.
Growing old with grace must mean that somehow our resentments, selfishness, ambitions, and grudges diminish. Compassion, understanding and sympathy take their place…….We sense the spiritual in our friends. We suspect God is in them and in us. Growing old with grace is surrendering vanity and the strident will, for the heart. As the Greek proverb says, “The heart that loves is always young.”
A beautiful thought for a Sunday morning.
