Most seniors never get enough exercise. In His wisdom God decreed that seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys and other things thus doing more walking. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God saw there was another need. In His wisdom He made seniors lose coordination so they would drop things requiring them to bend, reach and stretch. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God considered the function of bladders and decided seniors would have additional calls of nature requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise. God looked down and saw that it was good.

So if you find as you age, you are getting up and down more, remember it’s God’s will. It is all in your best interest even though you mutter under your breath.

  1. I wonder if this God was laughing when I fell in the bathroom yesterday??? Putting my pants on, got one leg in, then lifted the other to complete the job, next moment I was a over A over T. Crashed into the shower door, hurt my bum and my elbow. Then, I had to work out how to get up. All this time my husband was calling out to me as he can’t help. Rolled onto my front, used the toilet to heave myself upright, hurt my knee in the process. Got the shakes, felt totally miserable. Decided I had had sufficient exercise for the day and went back to bed. Someone should tell Him exercise for oldies is dangerous!! LOL!

    • Probably God’s idea of push-ups for the elderly. I fall down a lot. Going down is so easy but the effort is in the getting up.

    • Pixie, it would have to be my crook knee! Went shopping today (was supposed to go yesterday). Was never so glad to get home. Someone at the checkout asked me how I was. Told him I was like a broken down donkey! Haven’t looked for bruises, think I’d rather not know. I care for my husband and my brother so no help there. They still need to be looked after but I rest when I can. All good! Still above ground and pain tells you you’re alive!!
