Aging with Faith and Common Sense: A Practical Guide Book (Paperback)
Life can get better with age Old age is a gift from God. Live it to the fullest. The Bible gives us hope, comfort and encouragement in our journey of aging. It's full of promises to keep us going and a spirit of hope in our daily lives. Application of the advice given in this book is directed toward people of faith, but this application can be universal to all people. All of us on our journey through life can relate to common sense ideas that help make life fulfilling and joyful. Our "extra years" are not just for breathing. An old song goes: "Be my life's companion and we'll never grow old. When there's joy in living you just never grow old. You've got to stay young 'cause you'll never grow old." Christ is the perfect companion. Hopefully, this book will help us all to be companions that never grow old. Much of the common sense portion added by the author is based primarily upon the experience of aging, blended with useful quotes of wise and well-known people. Living in an independent living community, that also has assisted living and a memory care facilities, has made the writer aware of how the elderly live their daily lives. Observations of numerous relatives and friends who have lived in various senior facilities had been equally beneficial. The author believes what he has learned is worth sharing.
