So! How Did I Measure Up?
O heavenly spirit, I join
those before me in peace and eternal rest.
the flash of a lifetime we all have a chance to impart our imprint upon the world.
the choices I made reflected in the character I lived?
I allow God to be my guide?
I give my family the highest priority?
I love them enough?
I bring happiness to their lives?
Were their struggles made easier by my efforts?
Was I kind to those who were a part of my life?
Did I bring a smile to
those I met?
Was I able to apologize when I was wrong?
the world a better place because of me?
possible answer might be found in the memories of those I leave behind or perhaps
from the aftermath of deeds that are left to be washed up upon the shores of humanity.
