Milestones

When was a a kid, all the important people in the public world were older than me. (with the possible exception of the occasional child star I saw on tv)   The professional athletes that I watched and admired were all grown men, older than me. The first age milestone I remember hitting was when I realized that I had become the same age as many of them. I remember it striking me as significant,  when I became older than all of the football and baseball stars. The next thing that seemed freaky to me was when doctors started showing up who were younger than me. This didn’t seem right. After all, weren’t doctors kindly gray haired men who were even older than my parents? I’ve gone through bosses being younger than me.  Television reporters are younger than me. Now it has happened.  the leader of the free world is younger than I. Wow that’s a mind blower. Not long ago I would have viewed him as a kid.  Never mind his race, his  party, or his religion. I’m older than the president.

At least I’m still younger than the folks living in the retirement home down the street. Oh, and most of Arizona.

To President Obama:

I pray that the Lord give you wisdom strength and courage, all in supernatural doses, in Jesus Name, Amen.
