X Marks the Spot

Just for fun draw a line on a blank paper. Think of one end as the date of your birth and the other as the date of your death. Then, put an X on the place on that line that you think you are right now.

Let’s for now, acknowledge we have more history than future and think about how we expect to die.

Now let’s think about this: If you could choose how you die, describe what it would look like? Most of us would say,  “painlessly in my sleep.” One person, of recent time said she wanted to die in her sleep like her grandfather, not kicking and screaming like the other people riding in his car!!! 

In the middle ages, however, people said, “long and malingering so I will have time to get right with God.”

 Are you free to think about your own death? What are your thoughts?
