LUKE 1:5-25 – NEVER TOO OLD (OR YOUNG)!

  • What goes up but never comes down? Your age!
  • Aging gracefully is like the nice way of saying you’re slowly looking worse.
  • The older we get, the earlier it gets late.
  • You know you’re getting older when you have a party and the neighbors don’t even realize it.
  • Why am I getting older and wider instead of older and wiser?
  • These are not gray hairs! They are wisdom highlights! I happen to be very wise.
  • You’re not getting older, you’re just becoming a classic!
