The Best of Life is the Rest of Life!
Today was my birthday and it went pretty well, but now at the end of it, I'm reminded that I haven't done everything I need to do in this life. This can be problematic for many people, I'm sure, but then I'm only responsible for what I've done, or not.
I'm not really feeling bad about the situation, as someone always likes to say on the birthday card from the coworkers, having a birthday is better than the alternative. (At least in the natural.) I know that to be absent from this world would be the best thing that could happen to me. But I wonder, no, make that, I know that I haven't done all that I need to do in this life. But time is short. Biblically speaking I should have another 70 years, but I can't help but think that by the "signs of the times" I, or we, only have a few years left. Okay, maybe a decade or two. I need to do some thinking, and some praying, but mostly I need to do some "doing." So I guess I had better get busy. "The best of your life is the rest of your life."
