Old Person Pride


I'm passing this on as I did 
not want to be the only old 
person receiving it.  Actually, 
it's not a bad thing to be
called, as you will see.

  • Old People are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem. 
  • Old People remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them.
  • Old People remember World War II, Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, Normandy and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. 
  • They remember the 50 plus peace-keeping missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam. 
  • If you bump into an Old Person on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old Person on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady.  Old People trust strangers and are courteous to women.

  • Old People hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for her protection. 
  • Old People get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children, and they don't like any filth or dirty Language on TV, or in movies. 
  • Old People have moral courage and personal integrity.They seldom brag unless it's about their children or grandchildren.

  • It's the Old People who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.
This country needs Old People with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride In their country and decent values.

We
 need them now more than ever.

Thank God for Old People.

STAYING YOUNG
by Charlotte Pease

The spirit never ages.
The essence of the soul
Is sure and strong forever
And keeps us young and whole!

The body shows that time has passed
When lines enrich the face,
When sight and hearing weaken,
When movement lacks in grace;

And yet we know that deep within
We're winsome, bright and fair,
Just as we were when we were young
And life was ours to dare!

Let’s pray:

   Father, may we realize that the older generation really does have wisdom to share.

   Give opportunities to hear their views of things of importance to me, so I can be sure to better understand where they're coming from.

   Help me value the older folks I know so I can speak to them about how much they are appreciated.

   I ask for Your guidance through the older folks around me, to listen with respect. 

   In Jesus' Name. Amen

Today’s Bible verse: Ps. 25:21 "Let integrity and uprightness preserve me: for I wait on thee."

Today’s quote: Penny, a.k.a - “The person with a teachable spirit is confident in who they are while being aware of their limitations, level of knowledge, and abilities. People with a teachable spirit are those who happily say, 

   'Wow, I didn’t know that. You learn something new every day, don’t you?'

They can laugh at themselves when they make a mistake and are willing to give it another try when they fail. A teachable spirited person will seek help, instruction, and guidance before tackling a problem and not blame others for some disastrous results.”

Some thoughts today: Show your children why Jesus is to be praised. Tell them of your faith walk with Him from day to day. They need to know some of the battles and victories you're having. Give the children a vision of God's glory, and how He answers your prayers.

- Are there "grandparents" who can speak of their faith to your child? Invite them over for a meal or game night, and pray they'll talk of their experiences of walking with God.

A popular post:  Unconditional Love: what is it?  Jean Oathout – "We have opportunities to show love daily. Some folks who are hard to love, challenge our ability to show them love. I suppose at times others find us hard to love, as well."
