When Do We Grow Old!

14 Oct

From the Heart

Louise Gibson





I woke up in the morning,
mind refreshed and full of hope.
There is so much I want to do-
all within my scope.


My mind is willing, my mind alert-
I’ll spring right out of bed.
My mind is saying, “Go girl”
but my back says, “Whoa” instead.


Ego! Yes, ego is the culprit
in this aging game we play.
I don’t mind saying “I’m 87″
But,” getting old??? “No way!”


“None are as old as those who
have outlived their enthusiasm”

Henry David Thoreau



Look Up in the Morning

Embrace the Promise

When we wake up in the morning,

there is promise in the air.

We don’t know what the day will bring,

but the expectancy is there.

The time to be happy is now-

We have this day to explore.

Everyday is a special occasion-

What are you waiting for?

My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord;

in the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up.

Psalm 5:3

None are as old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.

Henry David Thoreau
