Why don't you act your age?

While I was working in the yard one evening, a friend of my tenant paused to watch me turning over the dirt, preparing a large flower bed. When I glanced his way, he said, "Boy, you sure don't act your age." Then, blushing, he added, "Not that you are old, but you sure act a lot younger than my mom." I had to laugh at his discomfort at having spoken so frankly. But as I continued my work the thought came: "How would you 'act your age' if you knew you were eternal?"

Since I do know that I truly am eternal as a reflection, or expression, of God, I had a wonderful time considering this spiritual fact while I continued to work in my flower bed.
