Growing Old(er)

 This is a re-post of a poem written over 6 years ago when
I was a very young man.  How things have changed! Ha! Ha!

North Side of 60

My body's growing older
My hair is fading fast;
There's much less of a future
So much of life has passed.
Yet life is so exciting
So much still left to do;
God's strength, I know, will aid me
I love Him so! Don't you?
He'll take this aging body
With all its aches and pains;
And use it for His glory
Some losses mixed with gains.
So as I journey homeward
With His hand clasped 'round mine;
I'll trust the Mighty Shepherd
And His great plan divine.
So join me weary pilgrim
And lean upon His word;
Let's share the old, old story
The greatest ever heard.
There is no greater pastime
Than walking with the Lord;
So leave your "things" behind you
He is your Great Reward! 

~ David W. Fisher, August 2007
Written during a particularly difficult time when things spiritual, physical, emotional and financial were on a collision course. In the midst of the trial, God's mighty hand was revealed in all His glory! Hallelujah!
