KATHIE’S KORNER — Quality of life is more important than one’s “old age”

Published 12:01 am Saturday, June 11, 2022

We must always remember it’s just calendar years.

I don’t recognize “stereotypes” put on people or their age. I think “old age” is highly overrated.

I look at the quality of life people lived or live. Our great grandchildren: Mallie, 4; Sean, 12; Lilia, 9; and Jonathan, 1, are always discovering so many new things, people, animals and technology. They are amazingly excited about the “simple things in life.”

Thanks to their parents, who live Godly, wholesome, giving, compassionate, fun lives, it is training their children by their actions.

Society will try to put limits on lifetime. Doctors and even some religious groups have predicted 70 years for a lifeline. The Bible says in Genesis 6:3,  “… the Lord said, My Spirit shall not forever dwell and strive with man, for he also is flesh; but his days shall yet be 120 years.”

I believe the scriptures instead of some scientist or theory.

“Consider what you hear,” (Mark 4:9). It’s critical at this time in the world and church what you listen to.

It’s very important what we hear and believe, how about the TRUTH? You’ve all heard the quote, “the truth will set you free.” Well, the correct quote is, “…You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free”(John 8:32).

Another verse Hollyweird uses in movies is “… all things happen for good.” WRONG, they are trying to quote scripture, but the scripture is “… all things work together for good for those who love God and are  called  according to His purpose.” Romans 8: 28 (Amp. Bible).

They tend to not finish their quote, ugh.

So, my point is have a Happy Birthday, no matter how old or young you are and help others celebrate theirs. Enjoy your life, making, hopefully, a difference in this world, spreading His Love, the Gospel,  everywhere you go. And, don’t MISS-QUOTE phrases.

God has done such incredible miracles, healings and blessed events in my life, join me, all you have to do is pray, ask Him to come live in your heart and fill you with His Spirit and we will, eventually be together in Heaven! Amen.

Join me at G.T.C.O.T.R. for Wednesday 7 p.m. and Sunday 10:30 a.m. refreshing Bible services!

Happy Birthday to Me, I will be receiving presents all week of June 8.
