I Love Growing Older but I’ll Never Grow Old, by J. Ellsworth Kalas.

The author was a United Methodist pastor for 38 years, and wrote more than 35 books.

Kalas believed that “growing older is a process, growing old is a conclusion”.  Kalas offered many ideas such as:

“fall in love with where you are”, and “the calendar knows our age, but nothing about the state of our soul and spirit”.

He also drew from many Bible passages like Proverbs 16:31: Gray hair is the crown of glory.

Other topics included friendship at all ages, revisiting our past, I’m not the person I used to be and I’m glad because God isn’t done with me yet, and

“whatever this life has been, the best is yet to come.

Two thumbs up.
