Defying Aging

I was staggered the other day when I read how much my country each year spends on beauty products and procedures, all to try to defy aging. Some countries revere the old, we try to ignore it. We seem to have a fear of death and dying, though we know it is unavoidable. As I know from experience becoming older can bring pain, illness and suffering, but that can happen at any age.

I find it is actually a privilege to be in my eighties, I have many friends who have not reached this age. God obviously has more work for me to do; I just hope I don’t miss out on the instructions!
