As a 63-year-old baby-boomer, here's my Bible verse for the week and beyond

As I get ready to take my training wheels off where I've been learning how to be a senior citizen, I've had to work hard to throw out the notion that the only productive place left for me is the back deck watching our six bird feeders. 

The Our Daily Bread devotion today reminds of a verse that I'm not out of the game of life and on the sidelines until my heart stops beating.  

This is also the verse that my friend Pastor David Maier used when he preached the sermon for my mom's funeral.  Challenges and obstacles in her life were non-stop.  She met them all head-on and she didn't quit until her heart stopped and now she's on the heavenly sidelines. 

I'm in the game and because of Jesus and what he did for me and everybody else, the prize is in sight.  It's given to be as a free gift and all I have to do is reach out and accept it.  Here's the verse:

Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. —1 Corinthians 9:24
