About the Book

This book is about the joys of aging. All too much has been written and published about the fears and perils of aging with the focus of most volumes being about the perils of falling; of not having enough money; or of having arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer, heart attacks, vision and hearing loss, loneliness, dementia, memory loss . . . just to name a few. I have yet to read a book about the joys and pleasures of aging. Well, I have been glorifying God for over sixty years, and now I feel it is time to simply enjoy him forever. And that is the first gift of aging—the pleasure of enjoying God forever, of not needing to strive with him, and of no longer needing to fulfill the demands of glorifying him or pleasing him. It all comes at about the same time in life when your children no longer sense the need to please you or to make you proud of them. It comes at a time in life when you want to be in each other’s presence simply to enjoy one another, which truly is the chief end of man.
