Wrinkles are not adorable!

"When grace is joined with wrinkles, it
is adorable. There is an unspeakable dawn in happy old age."
- Victor Hugo

Adorable???? Is this man nuts...wrinkles are in no Way adorable. I'm not so sure he is right about the dawn part either. But that might be favorite quote ever since I felt the menacing "dawn" of old age, has been:
"To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful,
reverent--that is to triumph over old age." - Thomas Bailey Aldrich

I think we can triumph over old age if we keep our heart unwrinkled.

Psa 92:12-15...

"The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
Those who are planted in the house of the LORD
Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
They shall still bear fruit in old age;

So get out there today and bear some fruit. Be kindly to someone. Be cheerful even if you don't feel like it. We serve as an example whether we think so or not...Now we can be a good example or a bad example but we all serve as an example to someone even if it is just your dog. It's amazing how our cheerful attitude can make our four legged friends feel cheerful themselves.
