Today's Tickles: "Age Attitude"
"Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we're kids? If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about aging that you think in fractions.
"How old are you?" "I'm four and a half!" You're never thirty-six and a half. You're four and a half, going on five! That's the key.
You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.
"How old are you?" "I'm gonna be 16!"
You could be 13, but hey, you're 'gonna' be 16! And then the greatest day of your life ... you become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony ... YOU BECOME 21 ....YESSSS!!!
But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk. He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There's no fun now, you're just a sour-dumpling. What's wrong? What's changed?
You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it's all slipping away. You know it; you REACH 50 ... and your dreams are gone. But wait, you MAKE it to 60. You didn't think you would! So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.You've built up so much speed that you HIT 70!
After that it's a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday! You get into your 80s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime.
My grandmother won't even buy green bananas! It's an investment, you know, and maybe a bad one!!
And it doesn't end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; "I was JUST 92."
Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. "I'm 100 and a half!
May you all make it (healthily) to 100 and a half..."

"The Fruit of Worrying"
Death was walking toward a city one morning and a man asked, "What are you going to do?" "I'm going to take 100 people,"
Death replied. "That's horrible!" the man said. "That's the way it is." Death said. "That's what I do."
The man hurried to warn everyone he could about Death's plan.
As evening fell, he met Death again. "You told me you were going to take 100 people," the man said. "Why did 1,000 die?"
"I kept my word," Death responded. "I only took 100 people. Worry took the others."
Worry is, and always will be, a fatal disease of the heart, for its beginning signals the end of faith.
Worry intrudes on God's compassionate ability to provide. When we allow* our problems to overshadow God's promises, we unknowingly, doom* ourselves to a defeat that was never part of God's eternal plans.
Release the regrets of yesterday, refuse the fears of tomorrow and receive instead, the peace of today.
Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Eternal and gracious God, help us to cast our anxieties on you and know that you care for us. Amen.
