So You Think Your Life is Over? You're Past 30, 40, 50? You're Over the Hill? THINK AGAIN.
Billy Graham was born in 1918. Betty White was born in 1922.
Which means that ....
Billy was 30 in 1948.
Betty was 30 in 1952.
Billy was 40 in 1958.
Betty was 40 in 1962.
Billy was 50 in 1968.
Betty was 50 in 1972.
Think about this -- and where you were back then (if you were even alive yet). Compare yourself to where you were in 1968, when Billy turned 50, and where you are today. Me? I was in elementary school.
When I look at that -- Billy Graham was already 50 when I was eating out of a lunch box and watching cartoons on Saturday morning -- it makes me realize how much more of Life is ahead of me.
Did Billy Graham at 50 think he'd have another best seller in 2010? I dunno. But it sure is amazing to ponder, isn't it?
So, yes, Dear Reader -- you've got a lot of living to do!!!! Don't settle! Don't become passive or scared. Press on toward that abundant life. Start today.
