“Moments ago I was a healthy 36 year old. But after donning an ”ageing simulation suit” I have been transformed into a frail senior citizen.” That quote is from an article in the Globe and Mail by Nancy Leung. It refers to a suit used by the Michner Institute for Applied Health Sciences in Toronto, that allows the participant to experience diminished eyesight, hearing loss, limited mobility and other challenges of aging. Thankfully, in reality, the ageing process is gradual. But however we experience it either suddenly by simulation, or slowly as we grow older, everyone of us will die. Count on it. And as we face the challenges ahead, how good it is to know we do not have to walk this road alone. Jesus promises, “Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He has also promised that when we pass from this life, for those in a proper relationship with the Lord Jesus, it will be “absent from the body and present with the Lord.” That’s a minute of truth!
