Aging with Faith - Portrait of a Believer

Billy Graham in 1966
This photograph dates from 1966. Now he is 88... one of the joys of growing older is the opportunity to spend more time together with Ruth, his wife. Says he, sometimes we'll just sit for hours, holding hands and talking... or even just enjoying each other's company in silence.
Of course, old age has its burdens, and nobody's immune. Whoever said, old age isn't for sissies had it right (and I remember my grandmother saying, batranetea nu vine cu toporasi.)
Bible and prayer have always been the foundations of his daily life. Now reading has become more difficult, so he reads the Bible less but prays more. He knows that each day is a gift from God.
