If we can believe and activate these truths about God, they will change us inside and out.
It’s not exactly a Bible promise we like–at least not at first. Who wants to boast of weakness? Power and strength are what enamor us, especially when the task is our idea. When we’re operating in our own strength, who gets the credit? But when God gives power in weakness, who gets the glory?
Old is a controversial concept. You may be depositing social security checks or contemplating a second career. You could be a parent, grandparent, or a middlescent saving for retirement.

Good Intentions This year would be different. After all, gardens take work–and energy. I planned to minimize and maintain, nothing excessive this year. No need to buy new flowers. That’s why I planted perennials. It all started with five bags of mulch–one bag per rose. That should make a soft cushy bed for my new rose garden and an easy way to discourage weeds. Veggies from previous years, too deprived of necessary sun, lost their place to this heartier variety of Knock-Out® rose.
