Workout 3/7: The Turdy Thrity(Five)

Do you ever wonder what you'll be like when you grow old? Some of you may already "feel" old, but that's not what I am talking about. If you are blessed to live over 75 and reach a ripe old age in your 80s, 90, or even your 100s, what might you do with your life? Or what might life do to you? A friend of mine just e-mailed me an interesting story that made me reflect on that. Of course when I reach the age of 101, like this man, I don't want to be just like him. In fact, I hope my life reflects mostly my purpose in every step with My God, but I wonder if I will also be able to accomplish this feat. Read about Buster Martin here.

I have to agree with you. My goal is to have my God say, "Well done, my good and faithful servant." We have to keep faith and press on towards goals that make a difference in this world.

Glad to be part of the teachers club. :) We teachers need a way to work out excess stress! :) Although I will wholeheartedly admit that while my colleagues agree, they simply do not understand why I feel the need to make my hands look like those of a construction worker, and why sometimes I struggle to sit down into a chair. ;)
