Is life as an adventure over at fifty, even if you're not dead? A lot of people seem to think so. I wrote this book because I've never had any fear of, or regrets about, old age.  An attitude of gratitude and appreciation makes it sweet. The decline of the body doesn't take me by surprise, nor cause me dread, so I don't resent it.  And I look forward to a new and permanent improvement later, the hope of the Christian.  At seventy-two I'm involved in small ways in the rescue of needy and defenseless people God sends my way.  I find I'm able to help others physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  This is a privilege. The Lord made this possible, despite my growing up in fear of my father's violent temper, struggling for twenty years with bipolar disorder, being divorced for just cause in 1978 by my only husband, losing a child to abortion through an IUD, and surviving stage 3 breast cancer, triumphing over it in the cross.  Thanks to the grace and mercy of God, my father became my devoted Dad in his old age, I've been mentally stable for over twenty-five years, and the man I married who had to walk away wrote, "Love now and always" in a get well card almost forty years later.  Since 1989 I've been living in the light of Christ and that has made all the difference.  I hope to encourage others to keep loving life at the penultimate stage of development and not to fear the transition into the next.  Jesus said, "Fear not."  In my experience, he profoundly blesses obedience to his instructions.  Nothing that has happened to you is wasted if you allow Christ to use it for his glory.
