Faith Not In the Odds
Today, I repost 0ver 40 Mom Myth Shattered at My Grandfather’s100th Birthday Party to honor my grandfather. He passed away on this week at age 101.
According to my research, the life expectancy in 1911 at birth for females was 53 years; for males it was 50 years. My grandfather lived 50+ years beyond what was expected. So you somewhat understand why my faith lies in a Higher Power rather than in the probability and the odds.
God not only gave him “long years of life” but gave “life to his years”. I’ll bet no one at his party will ever forget seeing him dance at his 100th birthday party!
May we live a life in which we will be proud to meet our Creator!
