Reflection



AS I SAT IN A DALLAS AIRPORT RECENTLY, I BEGAN THINKING OF ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS.

UNFORTUNATELY SHE PASSED AWAY OVER THREE YEARS AGO. I SAY UNFORTUNATELY BECAUSE SHE WAS A GIFT TO THE WORLD...GONE TOO SOON. HER SHORT LIFE TAUGHT ME THAT EVERY LIFE MATTERS. WE ARE JUST ON BORROWED TIME. THE BIBLE SAYS WE ARE A VAPOR THAT APPEARS FOR A LITTLE WHILE AND THEN VANISHES AWAY. AS WE GO THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS OF THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS LET US BE REMINDED OF WHY WE ARE HERE.

IN THE WORDS OF JOSEPHSON:

AT THE END OF OUR DAYS WHAT WILL MATTER IS NOT WHAT YOU BOUGHT, BUT WHAT YOU BUILT NOT WHAT YOU GOT, BUT HOW YOU GAVE WHAT WILL MATTER IS NOT YOUR SUCCESS, BUT YOUR SIGNIFICANCE NOT WHAT YOU LEARNED, BUT WHAT YOU TAUGHT WHAT WILL MATTER IS EVERY ACT OF INTEGRITY, COMPASSION OR SACRIFICE THAT ENRICHED, EMPOWERED OR ENCOURAGED OTHERS TO EMULATE YOUR EXAMPLE WHAT WILL MATTER IS NOT YOUR COMPETENCE, BUT YOUR CHARACTER NOT HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU KNEW ON FACE BOOK AND TWITTER BUT HOW MANY WILL FEEL A LASTING LOSS WHEN YOU'RE GONE WHAT WILL MATTER ARE NOT YOUR MEMORIES, BUT THE MEMORIES THAT LIVE IN THOSE WHO

LOVED YOU
