Loritts believes that these yearnings experienced by "second halfers" are actually rooted in a longing for eternity in heaven. He writes, "Those of us who are followers of Christ need to be reminded that there is a place that is really ours, a home for which we are created. God has given us the gift of eternal life and a place in heaven, and He has placed the longing for heaven in our hearts. This is our home, our destiny, and our calling." Loritts' wisdom is at once down-to-earth and biblical. The reader will see a transparent author who is journeying through these issues himself and will be admonished to examine his or her present priorities in view of eternity.
