YHC had planned to talk about trust in regard to leadership but was moved by Tomb Raider’s COT from the previous day so called an audible.

Death is now.  The choice is here.  Lay your life down.  Your heartbeats cannot be hoarded. Your reservoir of breaths is draining away.  You have hands, blister them while you can.  You have bones, make them strain-they can carry nothing in the grave. You have lungs, let them spill with laughter.  With an average life expectancy of 78.2 years in the U.S., I have around 250,000 conscious hours remaining to me in which I could be smiling or scowling, rejoicing in my life, in this race, in this story, or moaning and complaining about my troubles.  I can be giving my fingers, my back, my mind, my words, my breaths, to my wife and my children and my neighbors, or I can grasp after the vapor and the vanity for myself, dragging my feet, afraid to die and therefore afraid to live.  And, like Adam, I will still die in the end.  

Living is the same thing as dying.  Living well is the same thing as dying for others.”

excerpt from ‘Death by Living‘  N.D. Wilson

Flobee is a funny sneezer.
