Coming of Ageing - Reflections of Life

All of us are aging.

If God permits you to live a full life, by which we mean to 70-80 years of age or more, you will one day begin to cope with what aging entails.

Change is the currency of time. Do you reflect on your life, right now?

Tomorrow may not come. Be ready everyday for death.

Be at peace with life and the people around you, especially family.

Forgive those who have wronged you.

Seek quiet, pray, confess your sins, read the bible.

Be grateful for life whatever season of life you are in!


Exploring the Seasons Mentioned in the Bible

"Welcome to this educational article on exploring the seasons mentioned in the Bible. Throughout the pages of the Bible, there are various references to the natural cycles of the seasons and how they hold spiritual significance. In this article, we will delve into the different seasons mentioned in biblical texts and uncover their symbolic meanings, lessons, and celebrations.

Introduction to the Bible’s Mention of Seasons

The Bible encompasses a wide array of literature, including historical accounts, laws, poetry, and prophetic writings. Within these texts, there are numerous references to the seasons, reflecting the agrarian society in which the biblical narratives originate. The changing of seasons stood as a vital backdrop to the lives of the biblical characters, influencing their activities, livelihoods, and spiritual experiences..." from the article: Exploring the Seasons Mentioned in the Bible



"We live in a culture that dreads the inevitability of growing older, treats it like a disease to be cured with potions, tries to silence it with botox. And through all of this, we’ve forgotten that to grow old at all is a tremendous privilege - to become a person worthy of old age is the triumph of life.

Our goal shouldn’t be to cling to youth as we get older, but to keep our joy alive by tending our inner child throughout our days while also nurturing our connection to the changing world. In doing so, we balance wisdom with wonder, confidence with curiosity and depth with delight.

A long life is a gift. But will we really be grateful for it?

Filmed in Whidbey Island, Washington State, USA.

The full quote shared by Vicki during this film is by Florida Scott Maxwell - "You need only claim the events of your life to make yourself yours. When you truly possess all you have been and done, which may take some time, you are fierce with reality. When at last age has assembled you together, will it not be easy to let it all go, lived, balanced, over?" from video introduction
