Gray Hair and Wrinkles

Lately, my wife has been noticing the many gray hairs on the sides of my head. Before, I used to just ignore them but since my wife has been noticing them I suddenly became concerned. She used to just ignore them, too.

But just this morning she recommended that I visit the barber shop and have my hair colored black. Pretty soon she might start noticing the wrinkles on my face and recommending a wrinkle cream.
One passage I like that relates to all these is Proverbs 16:31 where it says, “Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained by a righteous life.” I just hope that the gray hairs growing on my head would be associated with the years of experience in life and the many people I have influenced for God through my life and my teaching.
