Senior Adults


“The glory of youths is their strength, but the beauty of the aged is their gray hair.” (Proverbs 20:29)

“In old age they still produce fruit; they are always green and full of sap.” (Psalm 92:14)

Help us to remember that long life is a gift not granted to everyone; and we pray that whatever wisdom, knowledge and fullness of love we may have attained in the past may be used in the present in your service.
--Delia Doll
