God, I love older people;
They grew up in the days of black and white
When wrong was wrong, and right was right
When you never had to worry about finding them on Sunday morning
They would be with their sons and daughters in pew number three
But now this modern world has us feeling out of touch
The church has turned the page
If we would just take the time to spend with older people
They have all the wisdom and the answers because they have been down those dusty roads and trails cluttered with hardships galore
Don’t miss the chance to be with older people
Tears were left on the pages of their bible where they left off before getting on their knees to pray
It’s time to believe the words that they heard at the beginning of their “sweet by and by”
They faced the rain and the storms with the scars of hands held high
They can tell us how a revival can melt a hardened heart
Their wisdom is a treasure underneath a lonely steeple.
Worry only sees the wind and troubled waters
Regret keeps us looking back searching for the shore
Fear only finds a sky filled with lightning
Faith keeps us walking on to where love, peace, and kindness await us with “open arms”
Take the time dear friends to spend with older people while they tell their captivating stories of days gone by.
And when the way seems hopeless, seek their wisdom while their eyes well with tears of childhood memories
To that church they love, they are the first ones through the door to pray that place in glory; their home forever more
The more I watch “em, the more like ’em I wanna be
God, I love older people!
Oops! I just remembered I’m one of them!!
Blessing from above my dear friends,
