The Best and the Worst of Aging

We had a 27-year-old guest at our senior adult prayer meeting today and the question was asked, “ What is the best part of growing older and what is the worst?” 

Among the answers for the best were, “freedom to say what you think,” “not worrying about what people think,” “being able to stay home in bad weather,” “having a track record of God’s faithfulness in our lives.,” and “knowing we are already living in eternity.” 

Among the answers for the worst were, “having our bodies betray us,” “losing our balance,” “hurting in places we didn’t know we had,” “having less energy,” and “taking longer to do things.” 

An answer that could fit in either category was “not being able to remember.” 

What have you found to be the best and the worst part of growing older?
