USED TO BE

Things I step over are higher than they used to be.

Things I duck under are lower than they used to be.

Stuff I wade through is deeper than it used to be.

Things I walk across are wider than they used to be.

Objects I carry are heaver than they used to be.

Errands I run are longer than they used to be.

Material I read is smaller than it used to be.

Reading lights I use are dimmer than they used to be.

Chairs I use are lower and harder to get out of than they used to be.

Stairs I climb are steeper than they used to be.

Floors I drop stuff onto are further down than they used to be.

But the God who made me and all that other stuff is the same as He has always been. And for this eighty-year old that is GOOD NEWS!
