Our older years need not be a time to merely cope. They can be a time of hope as we uncover the treasure God still has in store for us. The abundant life Jesus died for is not limited to a particular age group. As Hidden Treasures for the Golden Years makes clear, God assures us we can continue to bear fruit in the fall and winter seasons of our lives. Louise Looney considers Solomon's dismal description of the aging process in Ecclesiastes 12, by addressing our physical well-being. She helps us explore the scriptural passages for deeper meaning. While we are concerned with our outward appearances and obsessed with wrinkled skin and dysfunctional organs, God is concerned with the attitudes of our hearts. Each sign of aging from hearing loss to lack of energy is an opportunity to ask God to reveal what He wants us to learn. Things to Consider at the end of each chapter encourage us to search within and discover more about ourselves, making Hidden Treasures a valuable learning tool. The sweet, gentle voice of God can still be strong when our hearing grows faint. He provides insight even as our eyesight begins to dim. Armed with this new perspective on the signs of aging, we learn about the joy and peace He intends for us as we continue the latter part of our journey from here to eternity.
