The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just where the hands will stop
At late or early hour.
To lose one's wealth is sad indeed:
To lose one's health is more:
To lose one's soul is such a loss
As no man can restore.
The present only is our own,
Live, love, toil with a will-
Place no faith in "tomorrow"- for
The clock may then be still.
Mike, today we said goodbye with sadness, confusion & broken hearts but forever you will be in our hearts, thoughts and fond memories. We pray God will mend our broken hearts as we grieve the loss of YOU our beloved friend and brother in Christ. We look forward to the day we will see you again in the Kingdom of Heaven. We know God is going to use this tragedy for His glory. May we all grow from this and take nothing for granted as life here is short. Live with no regrets and forgiveness in our hearts. The end is near.
I want to end with some encouragement and my favorite scripture that I hold dear to my heart especially during times like these...
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11
