I found aNOTHER gray hair this morning! It is a new one. I know it because it was located further back than the other four I have found.
I’m in a “pickle” because I have always blamed each of the other four gray hairs on my children — one for each of them!
Now…I guess I can name this one “Kenneth”. (love you, dear!!)
The real challenge to this is how I view it…Is the glass “half-empty” or “half-full”?
As I near my 40th year, I realize that by all worldly standards, my life is soon to be half over. My opportunity to make a difference in the world is soon to be on the “down hill” side.
There has already been much I have learned — plenty through mistakes I have already made. Now I believe I am walking with the Lord (most times), and look forward to what He has in store for the rest of my stay here on earth.
My mission, however, is only half-done. I have half-a-life more to be obedient to God; half-a-life more to tell others about Jesus; half-a-life more to respond with kindness to a stranger; half-a-life more to help meet the needs of others; half-a-life more to be an example of Christ.
On one hand, I allow myself to view my glass as half-empty……but only when I think of how much more I have to give.
On the other hand, I could view my glass as half-full…full of God’s love and knowing that I am half-way to seeing Him face to face!
Either way….”It’s All Good”, as some would say!
I guess gray hair isn’t so bad — especially after I’ve plucked it out!
