Think on this...

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
~ Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross*


 
I like this quote and find it to be so true especially as I recently found out that this lady made some significant contributions in the study of death; in fact she was a pioneer in near death studies - yes, I also reject untimely death in Jesus name. However, it is a fact of life - we will all leave this earth one day - by death or rapture. She even put life in perspective in relation to death:
 
“It is the denial of death that is partially responsible for [people] living empty, purposeless lives; for when you live as if you’ll live forever, it becomes too easy to postpone the things that you know that you must do. In contrast, when you fully understand that each day you awaken could be the last you have, you take the time that day to grow, to become more of whom you really are, to reach out to other human beings.”
 
So purpose to live fully and leave empty...have a great life ahead...remain a bright light.
