So here we are at Christmas 1988, or should I say HAIR we are... haha. We all had more hair back then than we knew what to do with.
Yes, we were all stronger back then in our younger days. I was walking, driving and had the world in my reins.. or so I thought. Both my parents had full time jobs back then and were after the American dream. Proverbs 20:29 ''The glory of young men is their strength, gray hair the splendor of the old.''
Yes, the hair has fallen and faded just as our strength has with time. Yet we are all still here running the race of life for Christ 24 years later. His grace and mercy has protected us and brought us thru all those years. Isaiah 46:4 ''Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.''
Although I think overcoming my past hardships is worthy of gray hair, I'm blessed to not have had to travel that road yet. The 'fall out' was a rough enough road to endure. Whether you can see it or not, my parents have attained their earthly crowns as they wait to one day trade them in. Proverbs 16:31 ''Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteousness.''
