What Do I Know?

Older and Wiser?

For weeks I've been trying to figure out what it means to become an old man. I'm kind of scared, I've never had to do this before. I mean, what if I don't do it right? Are they going to take away my AARP card?

I guess now that I'm an old man people will come to me seeking my wisdom; and I'll remember my father's advice to me when he was feeling the aches and pains of his later years: "Son, don't ever get old."

I have learned quite a few things over the years. Some of it I can still remember, and some I wish I could forget. A lot of it was important once but isn't any more. But I would like to share a few of the things I've learned, for whatever benefit you can gain from them. I can't sit down and share them with each one of you individually in one afternoon so here are seven of the most important briefly:

HELP! My Friend Has Multiple Personalities

Others

This is my favorite study tool because of its detailed footnotes, easy comparison with other translations, and links to the original language text and translation tools.

A novel reflecting MacDonald's advice for practical Christian living.

A light-hearted story about the gravity of family relationships.

A delightful fantasy with a section in the middle of the book that reminds me of those "every-day" days that fill our lives (that I've described elsewhere as "oatmeal days") featuring one of MacDonald's hallmark story elements: the shadow.

A young boy's adventures teach valuable lessons.

This trilogy of novels provides a much richer, more detailed examination of what it means to live a Christian life.

Frances Hodgson Burnett: A Lady of Quality

A lady who learns to live a Christian life -- or does she?
