By its very nature, aging detaches us from earthly connections—our friends and spouses die, we downsize, our health becomes compromised, and the world that we are familiar with becomes strange and confusing. If these losses are not balanced by a keen awareness and well-founded hope in an eternity spent with God, then depression, anger, frustration, and fear can result. Keeping eternity in view helps us to accept these transitions with serenity. We understand that the losses are temporary, make the most of our remaining time on earth, and joyfully anticipate our future in the dwelling place of God.
