Well darlin’ I must tell ya,
A heart made ready for aging in your glory days, will be what keeps you going when the last vestiges of bloom , sparkle and splendor make their lingering exit out the back door.
What prepares you best for your golden years? Being fully aware that your character has been tested in the furnace of much affliction. Knowing that the dross has been scooped away and what’s left is genuine precious metal .
Foolish are the ones who arrive at the doorstep of their golden years still covered in the dross of their vanities . What a wasted life! They refused the furnace of much affliction during their youth , when a soul can actually withstand such melting and refining . To be purified and tried during your golden years has got to be hell itself.
