Growing Older

Lord, Thou knowest better than I know that I am growing older.

Keep me from getting too talkative and thinking I must say something on every subject and on every occasion.

Release me from craving to straighten out everybody's affairs.

Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally it is possible that I may be mistaken.

Make me thoughtful, but not moody; helpful, but not bossy;

Thou knowest, Lord, that what I want is a few friends at the end.
(unattributed quote from Chapter-By-Chapter Bible Commentary by Warren W. Wiersbe, p. 759) 29 November 2011
