Most of us give scant recognition to the aging process until we begin to notice physical changes: a wrinkle in the corner of the eye or mouth, a gray hair in the head or eyebrow, an “age” spot on the back of the hand, or some other common indicator. When one or more of these “symptoms” appear, our responses range from quiet resignation to full-blown panic. So, how are you dealing with the fact of your aging? Aging is a process of change; it is both inevitable and irresistible. If we wish to enjoy the later part of life (or any other part for that matter), we must learn to adapt to the changes that come our way.
Happy Free Friday everyone! Today’s free book, usually $12.95, is Aging Gracefully: Keeping the Joy in the Journey by David L. Petty.
Sooner or later, you realize it. You are getting older. But that realization is only the beginning. How you handle this reality is what’s important to making these years all they are meant to be. This is what David Petty will help you do. Aging Gracefully shares his passion to equip you with “tools” that can make this stage of your life all God intends.
Petty, a retired professional gerontologist, delves into the intricacies of aging changes that affect the whole person. He encourages the philosophy of adaptation to change, using God’s good gift of human resiliency, while addressing such questions as:
- Why do humans age?
- Who is a typical old person
- Why is my “forgetter” working so well?
- How is it possible to enjoy rather than to fear growing older?
Aging Gracefully will help you seek God’s will and His kingdom even more in every stage of your life.
