10 Years Either Way

Post by Glad E Olah on Wed Jul 09, 2014 9:05 am

Your age currently. (I just had a birthday which inspired this thread).

Think of all the things that have taken place in the past 10 years of your life.

Would you wanna be 10 years younger and go back to that time frame and relive them all over again?

Yes and no for me. A lot of events have happened since ten years ago. Some good and some bad. We all have them don't we?

Now, take your current age and add 10 years to it. Quickly the last 10 years have flown by and the next 10 no doubt will be just as quick.

What could your life be like in 10 years? Will you be as healthy as you are now? It is best to begin right away to take better care of your self and eat healthy.

Things to ponder on...................

No I wouldn't want to relive it Glad. Funny how the years fly by as we get older. I would like to accomplish something in the next 10 years, but I don't know "what". I have been on all the vacations I was to go on. I have done nearly everything I can think of, but I would like to grow more spiritually.

I still have Norway in my future, but Spiritual growth is my main aim too, ForgetMeNot. I hope for both, really. If it were not for this fungal infection, I would be in Norway right now!

I wouldn't want to live it over again. It was very difficult.
I don't want to look 10 years in the future, because I fear being alone again.

NO,I would not like to go back ten years or know what is in store for the next ten.
Live life one day at a time and be grateful to God for what you are given.

I'll stay in the spot where I am, too. I'm 84 and 94 doesn't appeal; I'll just keep going until Gabriel blows the horn for me. The past 10 years, including this one, are not my favorite span of time, so I certainly wouldn't want to repeat them.

I am the same way Snowden. Adding 10 years to my life is a bit scary. I would then be 78.

And yet knocking 10 years off I would be at the point in time I could still have my hubby....at least for another couple months and that would be wonderful if I could.

You're still a kid, Glad. My 70's were good years in some ways -- especially when a book store clerk asked me if I was 50. I was 72. (They gave a discount to people over 50.)

I admit that I would like to look as young as I did 10 years ago.
I would like to be pain free, but generally speaking, my health is
good. So no, I would not wish to repeat the past, nor would I
wish to be 10 years older.
Like others, I wish to grow spiritually. I wish to be of some help
to others before I begin to need help. It bothers me terribly that
one day I may have to rely on other people. I pray God sends my
Guardian Angel to fetch me away while I can yet care for my own
needs. ?
Does one's Guardian Angel accompany one to that final destination?

Interesting idea, Joyous. I doubt they do more than help us get to the door, and perhaps take up another person to guard. Funny -- I never thought of that. They are eternal, so one assignment and then retirement would be somewhat unexpected, I'd think.

Interesting joyous.....we all have a guardian angel so when we die I wonder if that angel goes to someone else? There are countless angels so I am not sure how it works once we enter God's Kingdom. And I wonder if our angel was with us the day we were born and follows us our whole life?

I was 70 last Sept. 11th.
No, I do not want to go back, many things have happened in the last 10 years.
I do not want to repeat them. Once was enough.

I do wonder if I'll make the next 10 years, and I wonder what will be in it.
If the Lord wanted me to know what was in my next 10 years there would be someplace to look it up.

I'll Stay right where I am and Live My Life--- One Day at a Time.

Mati, I like your thinking.

Perhaps Guardian angels are promoted when their charge leaves this life?
Perhaps they spend time praising God ?
I have always known I have one. I'm not sure when I became aware of
this fact.
Like Lightfoot, I'm very thankful.
