Does Age Matter 'For Adult Contest'

In God's eyes I'm just a babe even though at fifty-seven is my true age At sixty I will become a child still time to grow with skill and at times fail So much learning is still desired until the day my body will retire When I'm gone in heaven I soar in his eyes an adult is born Everything from past to present my eyes will see what I have achieved If I have failed in things I've done as an adult with God his love is strong.

Hi Tammy! Age is but a number; sixty will not make you child, but a grown-up person who can boast of a treasure called experience:) // paul
