The third stage of life holds riches beyond telling! As we do all this downsizing and letting go, accepting, and going from doing to being, we can be drawn into a deepening relationship—a rare friendship with God. This is the pearl of great price, the treasure hidden in the ground that is worth selling everything we have. It is in this time of letting go, experiencing a slower pace of life, and of deepening quiet and contemplation that we become freer to hear God's word to us in a special way and to feel his closeness and love as never before!
