Helen is 91 years old and she is "ready to go." Trouble is the LORD doesn't seem to be ready to take her yet.
So . . . she busies herself at her retirement home, walking the halls each day for one mile, exercising in her mobility class, and spending time in the gym (on the exercise bike and lifting weights). Does she do all of this to extend her life?
"No way!" she'd say.
She does it so she'll have opportunities to tell other old people that:
- there's a God who loves them and wants to get to know them,
- that He will forgive anything they have to confess,
- that each of us has a certain number of days allotted to us, and
- that we need to be ready to go at a moment's notice.
