I just came back from the 2018 Messiah Conference in Grantham, PA at Messiah College. I have attended off and on since 1987. It’s a great place to hear good teaching, dance a lot, eat a lot, and make new friends from all over the world!
As I looked around the cafeteria during our meals, I saw all age groups represented – from babies to people nearing 90 years old. There was joy all around and I noticed something amazing – those folks over 70 still had a twinkle in their eyes and a spring in their step!
I thought to myself – as long as I keep the joy of the Lord I hope to always dance and jump for joy in Yeshua! I was inspired by the elderly and amused by the innocence and laughter of the young.
Right now, as I write this, I am halfway to being sixty-five years old. I used to think that was old. But I feel young, I’ve been told I look young too (extra bonus), and I want to always keep that twinkle in my eye and spring in my step.
I feel so young --- how about you???
Nehemiah 8:10: “…….the joy of the Lord is your strength!”
