Aging requires that we look back and see what God has already done in our lives. We believe that God will answer our prayers, but seldom do we take the time to look back and assess how those prayers have been answered. How has God used our experiences with our parents, siblings, extended family, teachers, and friends? How has our church community shaped us? How have our emotional and physical experiences, good or bad, made us what we are? Each one of us is a unique child of God and to go forward requires an honest look at who we have become. Only then can we acknowledge and foster our unique place in God's kingdom.
