Living A life That Matters

Ready or not

someday it will all come to an end.

There will be no more sunrises,
no minutes, hours, or days.

All the things you collected,
whether treasured or forgotten,
will pass to someone else.

Your wealth, fame,
and temporal power
will shrivel to irrelevance.

It will not matter what you owned
or what you were owed.

Your grudges, resentments,
frustrations, and jealousies
will finally disappear.

So too, your hopes, ambitions,
plans, and to-do lists will expire.
The wins and losses that once
seemed so important will fade away.

It won’t matter where you came from,
or on what side of the tracks

You lived, at the end.

Through each day, our goal is..

to touch one’s heart,
to encourage one’s mind,
and to inspire one’s soul,

May you continually be blessed..
And be a blessing to others..
