My Grandmother is 90 years old.
Given life these days, that's considered a fairly decent landmark accomplishment. In Bible times, 90 years was just baby steps into life.
Imagine all the things seen over a 90 year span! Obvious things, like telephones in our homes (and our pockets), televisions and computers, sure; but other things that most of us have taken for granted as just 'having' like indoor plumbing and electricity at the flip of a switch.
My grandmother was born in a little town in Colorado back in 1919. Soddies, buckboards and wash tubs. Very 'Little House on The Prairie' living back in those days. What an adventure life must have been back in those days, though I'm sure at the time, walking those steps every day, adventure wasn't the word.
My children enjoy watching The Waltons and have figured up that Mary Ellen is the age of Grandma/GreatGreat. They pay attention to the things that interest Mary Ellen in those early episodes and imagine Great Great had some of the same experiences and dreams.
How old is old? Living to see a 90th year is pretty old I suppose. A body just gets tired of doing "life" at that age I'm sure. Grandma/Great Great is growing tired as she should at such a milestone but we all hope she keeps trodding along for several more years.
Check out the walk of history and science since 1919....amazing progress to be sure. Can you just imagine what perhaps another 10 years might bring?!
Happy Birthday Great Great :o). We have been deeply blessed for our history with you and the legacy you've shared for our future!
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
