A New Wrinkle In Life

A New Wrinkle In Life

My friend and I were comparing funny things our grandchildren say. She won. Her eight-year-old grandson was staying over. He came into her bedroom as she was finishing applying night cream. He said, “Grandma, why are you putting that stuff on your face?” She replied as she dipped her finger into the jar for one last bit of cream, “The cream prevents wrinkles.” He came to her side, and studied her face, “Well, it’s not working!!” Trying not to fall off her chair in laughter she said, “well, guess I’ll have to try a different one.” He wasn’t sure that would work either, but agreed it wouldn’t hurt to try.. Kids are honest. Maybe because they don’t know any better – yet, and in part because they trust us. Growing older gives us all kinds of wrinkles. From worry to regret to choices; the wrinkles of life show up.

I think that in part that is what this scripture is about. God never promised to wrap us in a bubble or make us puppets, but rather to walk with us in all things. Are we going to have problems, sure. Are we going to make bad decisions, of course. Are we going to carry the marks and flaws of life, yep!! The gift is that God will help us learn and grow in all that because we walk in God’s love and promise. And that my friends, is a new wrinkle in life.

Blessings,
