Espirational Faith 

–What’s your thoughts when someone tells you you’re getting older? A teenager might think, “Thank goodness. It’s about time. Now I’ll soon be able to take my driving test.”For me, a person soon to be 70, many think that the time of my adventures and fun in life should be considered to be over. Not me. I’m just in “middle age” I tell people. What? Ridiculous! But wait a moment. Is it really so ridiculous? Read my blog post in Espirational Faith this month before you decide so quickly.
