This day, I reflect on the hopes and fears that beset me on this complicated speck of dust as it whirls around this sun. I have had some growing pains of life that are already behind me and I must admit that there are others that accompany me each day, right by my side. The uncertainties of old age are still ahead -of course. I am bound by the confusions and inadequacies of this remarkably overrated period of human existence known as youth. It has its vitality and superabundance of 'free energy' (so far 😅). It may lack poise and all those qualities that make life supremely worthwhile but in the fire and optimism of this youth, and as I endure the 'excess energy ' that comes with it, I am thankful to God for the far that I have come, for this phase, and for the fact that He has never switched on me.
I thank God for the life that lies ahead of me,the several decades of splendid health and Years of useful productive activity for I'll be standing triumphantly at the summit of my full development as a human being and still be thankful. My hopes for life fall thick in this blast. I thank God.
