But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, ifonly I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from theLord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

Acts 20:24 (ESV)

Growing old has been the greatest surprise of my life, says Billy Graham, known by many as God's Ambassador. I would have never guessed whatGod had in store for me, and I know that as I am nearing home, He will notforsake me the last mile of the way.

When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growingold with grace is a choice, says the author. Growing older with grace ispossible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, theLord Jesus Christ.
