Last night I started reading a new book by Billy Graham called The Journey. It is so very interesting and true. This is one of the few first pages.
Life is a journey. Like every other journey, it has a starting point. You had no choice about it, of course, any more than you had a choice about your parents or the color of your eyes or your race or gender. But the minute you were born you embarked on a journey- the journey of life.
And like every other journey, it has an end. It may come suddenly and unexpectedly, or after years of declining health- but it will come, and like your birth, you'll have no choice about it. You can ignore it or laugh at it, but that won't change its inevitability. A wise poet once said that death comes equally to us all and makes us all equal when it comes.
But like every othe journey, it also has a middle- and that is our real journey: those years between our birth and our death.
You only make this journey once. Why not make the most of it?
That is what Jay did and that is what I want to do too. I am so glad that God put you and me on this earth at the same time so that are paths crossed. I am glad you are on this journey with me. Love you all, Pam
