I serve Seniors, and we are nearing the end. And sometimes when I discuss prolonging life,
one of my current hopes, I am reminded how much I should long for and be excited about leaving.....and I am not sure we have the right balance on that issue.
Being ready for the promised land does not in my thoughts to the Apostle Pauls eagerness to depart. I think this was the statement of a man who had already been told that his date with martyrdom was near.
I want to live another decade or so, just sayin. No disrepect to the Lord and His will.
