These Treasured Years

Once I thought

When our children are grown—

Educated, married, and left our home—

Then I will feel old.

I did not: I felt a sense of accomplishment!

Once I thought

When we are grandparents—

Watching grandchildren grow tall and learn of Thee—

Then I will feel old.

I do not: I feel proud!

Now, as I share these treasured years

With my dear and faithful husband—

Do I feel old?

I do not: I feel grateful!
