You see that a person is justified by good works and not by faith in isolation. - James 2.24.
Fifty: that is a docile five followed by a bullying nought! And for many people, it is a new milestone that is either met with a joyous 'wow' luxuriating in acquired experiences, or a more contemplative 'hmm' that is fearful of impending senescence. For much as 50 nowadays is nothing more that the new 40, it still is all of half a century that takes its toll on many men and women.
