A Funny Thing Happened on My Way to Old Age: Life Changes After 50
It started almost 15 years ago. My wife Marj and I had moved to a new community and visited a local church. We arrived for Sunday school, were warmly greeted, and then ushered into a class of seniors. . . . Unfortunately, the assault on our prime-of-life status from every quarter of society has only intensified since then. Waitresses have stopped asking if we qualify for the senior discount; they simply give it to us. When I'm in public, young women step aside for me to enter doors ahead of them. . . . A publisher issued a newly designed version of one of my books that had been in print for 20 years. On the back cover, I was described as one who "remains active in writing and speaking." I wondered why they didn't add that I could still feed myself. Whether you are 50 or 70, you have probably shared some of Stanley C. Baldwin's experiences. Here is an opportunity to relive them with laughter. But, more importantly, in these pages you'll find an opportunity to reflect on how these life changes relate to your Christian life. This is a book for those who reject the grumpiness of aging and embrace the grace of life with Christ.

This book not only gave me hope and insights about growing older, it was fun to read! I'm 54 so I'm just starting into this but I learned and was encouraged. Old age may not be for sissies but with the Lord--we can enjoy it! Read full review
