I came across this recently and it seems very appropriate for me as I “try” (understand I said: TRY) to begin on a diet tomorrow. If only losing 15 lbs. were as easy as putting it on!!!!
Now I lay me down to sleep...
I pray the Lord my shape to keep.
And, please, lift my butt before it sags!
Please, no age spots; please, no gray;
And, as for my belly, please take it away.
Please keep me healthy; please keep me young;
And thank you, Dear Lord, for all that you’ve done!Side bar: I should have prayed this sooner!!!
I really don’t mind (too much) getting older...definitely better than the alternative...but it’s the wrinkles, gray hairs, chin hairs, menopause weight, and saggy hiney that I don’t care for!!!! But I’m thankful...very thankful...for God allowing me to make it this far:)
*THE TRUTH IN 13 WORDS...
Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what the heck happened.
