Too often, we move through this life on a fast track. Ive never officiated, or attended a funeral where there wasnt at least some sense of surprise, or regret that this life had ended. Yet, we all face the time when this life will end. Still we rush to get, be, and do things that we hope will give us some security and assurance of our place in life.
The most tragic outcome of lifes fast track is the strained, discarded, and sometimes broken relationships that result from our frantic pace of living- not to mention the loss of lifes simple moments.
