"If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s." Romans 14.8
Death. I have to tell you that I'm not afraid of death, but I'm not looking forward to dying! I think that sums up the feeling that many folks have. We know what we have here on earth and the thought of leaving these things is, well, it's kind of depressing. For me, it's not death that's depressing but the 'opportunity cost' that death represents. To not be there as my family navigates the joys and trials of life---will that is sad. And in the case of life that is taken way to soon, it is again the opportunity cost of 'unrealized potential' that I mourn; what could and should have been.
