Wow! I like the Aging and Glowing title. Old wine tastes sweeter as it becomes vintage. The wealth of experience of senior citizens are always a blessing. You are warmly welcome to the World Pulse sisterhood and congratulations on your first post. Age is in the mind. "You are only as old as you think you are." I love that.

Thank you for taking care of the vulnerable. It is blessing-filled and all your sisters are eager to support you in whatever way that is feasible.

We are eager to read more from you and get fresh updates about the impact of your group.

Love and hugs,
E. J.

Dear Femi,
Welcome to World Pulse, and thank you for sharing your wisdom with us. I totally agree with you, and I like to think of every year as an imprint of God's grace and goodness to sustain me, so then why would I complain about it? Why not celebrate.
Positive aging is a powerful message in our times, especially for women. Thank you for the encouragement and pointing us to a positive view of gaining in days .
It is lovely to meet you, and see your passion and love for the needy and vulnerable. The Lord will not forget your faithfulness in how you've served His people and continue to serve them.

May your cup always be filled to overflowing, so that you will always have something to give any who asks you.

Blessings of joy and safety as you go about your work :)

Hello Femi and welcome to World Pulse! I absolutely love this: "Now our Energy is more focused, and on a few significant undertakings, we are the FINE WINE." The wisdom, the intention and power behind these words I can feel - the steps you take now are about quality and intention, more meaningful - rather than a checklist of quantity. This is a radical, amazing, wise, powerful act and your words are empowering to hear, keep on sharing Femi.

Hugs from Canada,
Adriana

Reverend Femi Joseph,
A great welcome to World Pulse. What an empowering message, "we are fine wine...you are only as old as you think."

There are so many nuggets of wisdom in your short post and it is truly appreciated because we do not hear many voices of the elderly.
The older one gets, the wiser one becomes because of the all the lessons that one has learned in the classroom of life.

The "Mission for the Needy" of which your are the founder and CEO is very much in demand in many countries, particularly African countries where elderly people are seen as a huge burden on their families and communities.

I commend you for this initiative and I hope that many other communities in your country emulate your example. More power to you.

In sisterhood and solidarity.
