To Be Continued

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.  (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV).

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:  
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star....
(William Wordsworth “”Intimations of Immortality”)

I am at that age when younger people ask me “Why do you care about this issue, it will not be decided or resolved until long after you are dead?”  I answer very simply “Because a concern for this issue has been placed upon my heart.” I cannot say for certain precisely the process by which my consciousness takes some ownership of this issue.  I only know that it does so and that I am absolutely certain that such concern is valid and right, however seemingly improper. (As a believer, I say that God has placed this concern upon my heart.)  It is a signal trait of mankind–this desire to connect and contribute to a future in which one will not personally participate.  It is one of the more beautiful traits of mankind and testifies to persistent intimations of eternity.
