Life Goes On

In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: It goes on. (Robert Frost, 19th-20th century American poet)

We have all experienced the deep grief of losing a loved one. It seems that the pain and loss will never go away. But, we soon discover, as Frost has written, life, indeed, does go on. There are others who have experienced great success, perhaps world renown through winning a sports championship. They, too, discover that the exhilaration is short-lived, and normal life goes on.

How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. (James 4:1)
