Boaz, the leading man in the Hebrew book of Ruth, enters this short love story in chapter 2.This book is the story of a young widow named Ruth, whose heart had been broken by her husband’s death yet healed by faith in the God of Israel.For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm.” Ephesians , 12 (NIV) I still remember being sequestered in the Bride’s Room of our church just moments before the organist began to play for the early arrivals.As I sat before an oversized gilded mirror trying not to wrinkle my dress, I daydreamed about the man who would become my husband in moments. Staring at my reflection, an unwelcome thought popped in my mind.Or maybe you just want to work through a year's worth of studies on your own or with a friend. We've assembled a nice mix of studies that includes topics such as aging gracefully, thriving in the empty nest, making retirement meaningful, the joys and trials of grandparenting, dealing with health problems, and facing death and looking forward to heaven.
