Living History

posted by Linda G. Howard

You know you are old when:

A review of history for the past century is the story of your life.

You look in the mirror and wonder when your mother got so old.

Your grandchildren start having children.

You would rather sit at home for the day rather than go for a walk, go shopping, eat out or sit on the porch.

You can fall asleep any time during the day but you are wide awake at 3:30 in the morning.

The most embarrassing event of your life is your only interesting conversation.

When you can’t watch a complete TV show without a long nap.

When you would rather watch the news instead of the newest sit-com on TV.

When you can not only name the last 15 presidents but you’ve met most of them.

If you fit any of these points, you are old.  I wish I could help you out and give you a word of encouraging, youthful advice.  But, unfortunately, I fit all of these.

    so, how to live as there is no power, no hope, and trying to still something wrong. Pain and grief are difficult to resist.

      What? Perhaps, I don’t understand your comment. The post was intended to be a humorous commentary on my day. Sorry, if you didn’t catch the humor.

Overcoming Fatigue
After four days of Camp Agape, my children laugh that I'm in my Camp Coma for about a week.  While it's humorous there is a lot of truth in their designation of my abilities.  There are some things that I've learned from others and from my own experiences regarding physical fatigue. First, this

Explaining grace
In the past weeks, I've been going over some of the key words in our covenant relationship with God.  Perhaps one of the most important words we use is grace. Most of us have learned and maybe we even remember God's Riches At Christ's Expense This is great explanation of grace and

Familiar customs and limited means
When the Biblical young woman, Ruth, married into a Jewish family she understood little about their ways, God or religion.  This is my supposition; but I base the conjecture on facts.  Moabites were shunned by the Israelis.  Decades before, Moab wronged the wandering tribes who desired to trav

Pressure Time
Is there a time that you can remember that you were pressured beyond your ability to cope? There have been many for me. As a child, my mother told me again and again that I was constantly burning the candle at both ends. For years, I had no idea what she meant. When I finally understood her, I wa

When we leak
Recently, I've heard a great deal about the things the Holy Spirit was doing in the 1960's and 1970's.  It is interesting to me because those were days through which we lived.  There were times that it seemed that the Lord was tangible enough to reach out and touch.  Even though I was very young-
