My current read is Nearing Home: Life, Faith and Finishing Well by Billy Graham. This is a very good book for any age but especially as we grow into our “golden years.
Mr. Graham, as always, hits a home run with insightful perspective and valid points. Here is an excerpt that was very thought provoking:
“To all who read this book, my prayer is that you will sense God encouraging you to impact those around you, regardless of age. Look for the Lord’s purpose in every circumstance and in every face or voice you encounter daily, for the time he has given you is not without purpose. Prepare for each day by asking The Lord to open your eyes to what is going on around you. You may feel lonely, but perhaps the Lord will use your smile to draw someone else close to you. You may experience pain, but The Lord may use your resolve to strengthen another who doesn’t have the will to go on. We can reject the opportunity to be used of God or we can seize opportunities to impact others as a testimony to Him.” ~ Billy Graham
