While many of us long for younger days, filled with more energy and enthusiasm, there are blessings to growing older. Often we have greater perspective that comes from experience, and yes, this experience comes with making mistakes. Scripture says, “Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life” (Proverbs 16:31) Use your years of wisdom and experience to not only be a healthier father/ mother, husband/ wife, but friend and mentor and pass along truth to others who desire your counsel.
