Modern terminology refers to a woman’s older years as the “third third” of her life. This is not a time to check out, but a time to be fully invested in order to make her mark and finish well! This “third third” of life is also known as the golden years; or the time of retirement after turning 65. For the purposes of this study, we are choosing to focus on a second definition. The golden years are also known as a period in which someone or something flourishes. Because retirement is not an option for the older believer, a woman’s golden years are to be a time of flourishing and fruitfulness—
THE BEST YEARS OF HER LIFE!
