Recently, Rob and I attended a memorial service for a friend we knew from high school. Rob had known him for many more years than I. They had been in Boy Scouts together and had spent many fun times enjoying the "great outdoors". His un-timely death was unexpected......he was 43 years old. As I looked around the church at the service, everyone looked so stunned. How could this happen to someone in the prime of their life? It is at times like these that suddenly my life is put into perspective. Everyday is a gift from God. How am I spending my days? I am really trying to live everyday for the glory of God? Am I spending my time enjoying the beautiful world our Lord has created or just rushing from one place to another? My heart is breaking for the family of our friend. My hope is that I will see him again one day in the place that Jesus has prepared for me.
