Recently I got to wondering what the age of the oldest living American was. So I googled “oldest living American” and found the answer. Her name is Gertrude Weaver and she was born on July 4, 1988. That makes her 116 years old! And as old as I feel some days, I am nowhere close to that age (you can read about this amazing woman right here!)
Indeed, 116 years of living is a long time! But even Gertrude's longevity is just a puff of smoke when compared to eternity. As James writes, “What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes” (James ). So – life is short (yes even a life that extends more than a century!). Don’t waste it! Each year, each day, each hour, each moment is a precious gift from God. Let’s take these gifts and use them for HIS glory!
Thanks for stopping by . . .
