This may sound cliché: I hope that 50 years after my death, regardless of if my name is remembered or not, that JESUS may be better known because of my life.

The question that King Solomon seems to be asking throughout Ecclesiastes ("What's the point of all this?") is answered by Jesus when he says, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst" (Jn 6:35).

We're so hungry for a feeling of success (or worth) that we look for things in which to be successful. But I think we find our true success simply in believing in Christ, who confers on us the righteousness that HE earned, not us.

Yes... yes... yes... cliché and goody-two-shoed Christian answer, but I need to find my value and identity in Christ, not in myself.


Mike I agree with your assessment. You have succeeded. I think each and every line of the poem describes you well. Thanks for being a life long friend. I'm looking forward to the next 25 years.
