Scripture is filled with examples of men and women whom God used late in life, often with great impact—Noah, Abraham, Moses, Elizabeth, and Anna, to name a few. They were ordinary men and women who discovered that the latter years of life can be some of the most rewarding and fulfilling. “For them, growing older wasn’t something to be denied or dreaded;” says Billy Graham, “it was to be embraced as part of God’s plan for their lives.” Billy Graham’s life and ministry have been dedicated to the here and now but always with a happy-ever-after in view. In this moving narrative he reflects on his life and contemplates what God still has in store for him. He also shares how he has learned to deal with grief, uncertainty, and loss by focusing on the promises found in the Bible. “Explore with me not only the realities of life as we grow older but also the hope and fulfillment and even joy that can be ours once we learn to look at these years from God’s point of view and discover His strength to sustain us every day.” —Billy Graham

He goes through several topics related to the aging process, sharing stories and tidbits of wisdom he's learned along the way, but most of all expressing his views on how he thinks God would have us handle these matters. Even though I am younger and not personally facing these issues I found myself mulling over the spiritual lessons about life and from life that he shared. I highly recommend this as a great read or listen, especially to anyone interested in spiritual matters and/or living life well.
P.S.: The audio version had a narrator that captured some of the "down home" quality of Grahams voice, so even though it wasn't Graham himself speaking it felt enough like him that I felt like Graham himself was speaking to me, which made reading/listening to this book even more special. So I'd definitely recommend the audio version. Whether you read it or listen to it please consider treating yourself to hearing these words of wisdom from a great servant of God.
