Father Time is not always a hard parent,
and, though he tarries for none of his children,
often lays his hand lightly upon those who
have used him well; making them old men
and women inexorably enough, but leaving
their hearts and spirits young and in full vigour.
With such people the grey head is but the impression
of the old fellow's hand in giving them his blessing,
and every wrinkle but a notch in the quiet
calendar of a well-spent life.
~Charles Dickens~

The Door
It's a mystery to me, oh Lord,
Why You have let me live;
I thought my life was over,
I had nothing more to give.

But this mystery continues
And as I am getting old,
Some pieces of this puzzle
Are starting to unfold.

After all the pain and tears
You have made me see,
Each day is a new adventure
That You have planned for me.

A new door opens every day
And I wonder what it brings -
Will my heart feel sorrow
Or will my heart have wings?

I cannot see beyond that door,
But I know You hold the key
To open up the mysteries
That lie ahead for me.

So thank You for this gift of time,
I know there's something more
You'll show me in my future,
Beyond my special door.

~R. Zielinski~

"All human beings have failings,
all human beings have needs
and temptations and stresses.
Men and women who live together
through long years get to know
one another's failings;
but they also come to know
what is worthy of respect
and admiration in those
they live with and in themselves.
If at the end one can say,
This man used to the limit
the powers that God granted him;
he was worthy of love and respect
and of the sacrifices of many people,
made in order that he might achieve
what he deemed to be his task,
then that life has been lived well
and there are no regrets."
Eleanor Roosevelt

That best portion of a good man's life;
his little, nameless, unremembered
acts of kindness and love.
~William Wordsworth~
