105-Year-Old Lady Shares 2 Important Secrets to Happiness, Long Life

Living a long and beautiful life is a true blessing from God! Imagine turning 105 years old in the company of family and friends. This, indeed, is a gift from the one up above.

As Jessie Jordan turned 105, her inspiring story captured the hearts of millions. During an interview, she kindly shared two important secrets to being happy and having a long life.

Jessie Jordan says she’s ready to meet God

Even though only God knows when our time on Earth is up, Jordan said that she lived by the mantra of always doing good to others. This way, she has no fear when the Almighty knocks on her door and asks her to enter the gates of heaven.

When asked what it’s like to be 105 years old, Jordan said that it’s different.

“Because you never know when the next minute is,” she said.

Forgiveness, peace are the secrets to a long, happy life

The adventurous swimmer who only stopped getting into the water at age 101, didn’t hold back when explaining why she thinks she’s able to live a long and happy life.

“I think peace is more like happiness – having peace in your heart, not holding any grudges against anyone, forgive and then you would be forgiven. And if you don’t forgive, you won’t be forgiven. It’s as plain as that,” Jordan said.

The elderly woman from Scotland went on to say that peace comes from God.

“The Lord is good and his mercy endures forever. Those who have sinned to God love the Lord and I love him very much. I’ve sinned… we all sin, but I sinned and he’s forgiven me. And there’s forgiveness for everyone who believes that he is the son of God who died and rose again,” she said.

Jordan’s story is truly inspiring. And though she acknowledges that forgiveness may not come easy for everyone, she insists that people should at least give it a try.
