My Birthday Wish: All I want This Year is More Wisdom!


Today, I turn 60 and enter the winter of my life. I am starting it off with a bang! Tomorrow, I am having three teeth extracted, getting a partial temporary denture, and ultimately a four-tooth permanent (implant) bridge. I’m getting old! But with age, comes wisdom; the earthly kind.
Earthly wisdom comes from life’s experiences. Those of us in the winter of our lives have a keen awareness for what is important: a strong faith, good health, and our family’s welfare. We find that if we have these three things, then we have all that we need. However, even with the 60 years under my belt, I still seek more Wisdom. When you get to my age, you find yourself asking those soul searching questions:

though for me, just last week, they had a particular health-&-wellness twist to them…
For, at times, I see within myself “another principle at war with the law of my mind, taking me captive” (Romans 7:23); or off route, at the very least.
So, there I was, rather ruined (miserable & unable to function) throughout that evening & night, into the following day as well—all because I resisted, and decided to say “no” to what I have long known to be good for my own well-being.  Maybe you, too, can relate.
For the flesh has desires against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; these are opposed to each other, so that you may not do what you want…
Way quote. Lord that I may have Wisdom III
