Though seeing, they do not see (Matt. 13:13)
About 6am this morning I was trying to read ingredients on some medicine bottles to know the right one to give to my son whose coughing was keeping me awake (he went to the doctor this morning, for his cough not a medicine overdose). I tried really hard to get my eyes to adjust but simply could not make out the small print.
It hit me right there at the medicine cabinet. I'm getting old. Ok, 39 is not that old, but I never thought that I would get to the point where I couldn't read something. I have had reading glasses for years but rarely wear them and have never come across something that I could not read if I tried hard enough. I have not lost any hair and have not had any gray . . . until recently (and very few).
I had always felt immune to the effects of aging. But, I will not go down without a fight! Though I may wear my glasses more.
