How to stay “forever young”


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times It’s been said that you are as young as you feel, a saying that indicates that youth is as much a state of mind as it is a chronological/biological reality. There are those who are old before their time and there are those who seem eternally youthful and energetic in spite of their years. The reason for this is often the mindset of the person who is either old while young or still young despite being very old. A certain mindset can cause us to give up on being involved in life and thus age us faster than time itself while a different mindset can cause us to stay involved and defy the passage of time for much of our lives. Those who choose the latter will remain involved in life and constantly be looking for things to do, things that enrich their lives and the lives of those around them. It is being involved in life, being useful to and a blessing to our lives and the lives of those we encounter in life that keep us, as the song says, “forever young.”
