The Older I Get “Isms”

The older I get the more I realize, you really can’t predict anything.

Life is not certain in any place.

Faith is paramount no matter what you believe.

You can’t really count on anything except your fingers.

You can rely on God to do what He wills.

And He wills what’s best for us.

Sometimes, what He wills is best

and what we will is best are polar opposites.

The older I get the more I see how broken we all really are.

The ones trying to have it all together are the ones falling apart the most.

The ones who could care less are having all the fun, living life to the fullest.

The older I get, the younger I want to be.

Although I regret all the time I’ve wasted, I still keep wasting it.

I’ve learned many lessons, but it’s always after the fact and the chance to try out what I’ve

learned may not come around again. So lesson learned, period.

God gives us quite a large margin for second chances, but when they’re gone

They’re gone.

The older I get the more I understand that every person’s reality is subjective.

Totally. How in the world we ever see the same thing is beyond me.

Life is way shorter than I ever thought!

The older I get the less stuff I need.

I’ve learned that stuff is overrated and time is the real treasure.

Time is what I should be putting in my pocket, not change.

Although change is necessary, as long as I have time, I can make change.

They say your past doesn’t define you, well I say phooey on them.

Every step of my past has defined the woman I am today.

For better or worse. It is so.

All I’ve ever been has made an impact on who I am now and who I am now

will determine who I become. And when I become, my past will have defined me for certain.

The older I get, the more I see that God gives us choices.

He expects me to choose life. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t.

The times I don’t are the times I can’t see my way. The times I do

are only because He illuminates the way. He provides. I choose.

Then I live out the consequences.


The older I get, life becomes simple.

Not easy, simple.

It’s always been simple, I was just too greedy for gain, strength, applause,

approval, validation, and recognition to walk in the simple.

For that, I need a boot!!!

Thank God that IS one lesson I can apply the learning to!

And I can start today!!


Let Christ be glorified in all!
