I will probably never understand why my brain does some things.
This morning I woke up with John Mellencamp running through my head. Permit me to rant a bit now.
“Life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone.”
This song sets forth the argument that after sixteen, life just goes downhill. It seems to make the claim that the best sex you will ever experience comes outside of marriage and somewhere near a “Tastee-Freez”. It actually admonishes people to, “hold on to sixteen as long as you can.”
Now I know, this is now an oldy. But has this heart, this spirit invaded our culture, our churches? Stay young, stay beautiful. The old are in decline. The youth of today are the ones that carry the relevant message of our day.
I love keeping things fresh, alive, especially in worship. I love the energy, the vitality of youth.
I am not dead yet. I am just older. My voice still needs to be heard. My life should bring encouragement and hope to,those that follow after me. I am still fresh, energetic, vital.
If I choose to be.
