Usefulness

From The Upper Room

As one of her contributions to the family, my grandmother would rip up old clothes, and used a large wooden hook to crochet the rags into colourful rugs. They were sometimes long, like a hall runner or sometimes small to lay beside a bed, When we got out of bed in the mornings it was a comfort not to feel the cold floor in an unheated bedroom but instead to set our feet on a soft rug. Those old clothes were no longer any use for their original purpose but were now useful in a different way.

As we grow older we may sometimes feel that we may have outlived our usefulness. But God always has a purpose for our lives, We may not be able to do the tasks that were easy for us when we were younger, but along the way we have gained knowledge and insight that we can share with others Even in our senior years we can seek new ways to glorify God and serve others.

Mine is to try to bring a smile to those I meet.
