Lent: Getting ready to die

You are going to die someday.  Hopefully it will be after a long happy life but no matter what we will all die.

Ask yourself what will make you happy on that day. 

You might be surprised.  The things in your life, and the people you treated like things, won't give you any comfort.

What will make you happy is what you did for others. 

Things never bring lasting happiness just like drugs never bring a permanent high. Both will make you feel good for a bit but in the end things fall short of bringing us true happiness.

Use this Lent as a time to figure out what you need to do to ensure that on that last day of your life you can look back and say job well done to yourself.  Anything else is really just a distraction.
