Old age isn't a punishment - it's a gift from God, Missy Buchanan says in Aging Faithfully. She believes it's all a matter of how people choose to view aging. If they focus on negative images of growing old, they will likely miss the treasures right in front of them. But if they fix their eyes on God, they will discover the abiding joy that can accompany a long life. This book is divided into four weeks, each with a particular theme: 1. Accepting the challenges of aging 2. Finding God's purpose in aging 3. Overcoming the temptations of aging 4. Discovering the joy of aging Each daily reading supports the weekly theme with a scripture passage, meditation, prayer and suggestions for deeper thought or practical application. Sunday of each week offers the reader a time to celebrate the culmination of the week's readings. Reflection questions at the back of the book may be used for small-group discussion or as another opportunity for individuals to explore the topics more fully. Readers who take time to complete these 28 days of prayer will discover how to age both joyfully and faithfully. Aging Faithfully may be just the resource some persons need to see aging as a positive experience instead of fearing it.
