    At the ripe old age of 73, I am much more aware than I use to be about how quickly life goes by. Time stands still for no one and our life on earth is but a breath compared to eternity. I often reflect on how futile our efforts to gain the whole world are, “And phantom-like we go about, we scurry all in vain; We heap up wealth, yet know not who will end up with our gain.” I often record in my journal, “it is all vanity and blowing in the wind” (Ecclesiastes 1:14).

    When I have thoughts like this it helps me to refocus on my purpose and why I a am here. My purpose is to love God and love others. This helps me to focus on relationships not gain or other things that distract me or compete for my attention. I always end up in the same place as far pressing on and making the most of my remaining days, Live life fully, Love deeply, and Leave a legacy.
