Yesterday, flying from Ashville, NC to Charlotte, NC to Atlanta, GA to Austin, TX...all that, compliments of God's wild weathter that was creating airline chaos over the eastern half of North America, and even all over the world...I was struck by two widely differening observations.
"It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely."
"The one true freedom in life is to come to terms with death, and as early as possible, for death is an event that embraces all our lives. And the only way to have a good death is to lead a good life.... The more we do God's will, the less unfinished business we leave behind when we die."
