INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES AND ANECTDOTES ~ In The Light Of Eternity ~ October 1, 2011 by Mary Haskett

Recently I saw a news feature identifying people who were living up to a 100 years and beyond. Several women in this age category were interviewed, one was 109 and another 111. Their response to questions as to what contributed to their longevity were succinct and sometimes humorous. Sadly one woman said it was due to the three beers she drank every day.

The end report determined that researchers had found that all these long lifers had one thing in  common—a certain group of genes! Researchers may have made this discovery, but God created the genes. This revelation reminded me that God has ordained the number of our days and in the light of eternity it’s not so important as to how long we live, but how we live while we’re here on earth. Wouldn’t you agree?

Mary Haskett is a fellow author. Thank you so much Mary for sharing your thoughts on longevity and  that how we choose to live our lives is what really counts.

  1. Very interesting, Mary! Yes, I do agree that it isn’t how long we live, but how productive we are in the years the Lord gives us. It is sad however, that some people who live to be older also become bitter and in poor health, and you wonder why they suffer. But a sharp mind and an ongoing love for life and our Lord, makes a great testimony for anyone!
    God Bless!
