Ageless living

When reading the message on the cover of the April 4, 2011, Sentinel, “Vibrant at any age,” I very much agreed with that. There are so many stories in the Bible that give us a deep insight into the agelessness, not only of the patriarchs and prophets mentioned, but of each one of us as created in the image of God. One impressive example is Abraham who, at an advanced age, was told to leave his country on a hard, long journey to discover new land and to be blessed (see Gen. 12:1–4). All along the way, God was with him, guiding him. 

Several times in my life, because of political, educational, or personal situations, I’ve been forced to leave everything behind and to start anew. When having nothing material to hold on to, one may be fearful of a downward slide. But my experience has shown me again and again that there is something to hold on to, and that is God’s love. Divine Love is very reliable and always present. It’s been my guide and my rock to build on.
