Everyone’s tombstone will have two dates separated by a dash. That little dash is your time on this planet measured against eternity. How do you plan to live out that dash?Anonymous
Lorelle on WordPress wrote an article about this anonymous quotation. Needless to say, these three sentences are quite profound and require a great deal of thought. Introspective thought. The kind of thought that is often easier to leave for another day.
Our Time Measured Against Eternity
“Our time measured against eternity”. Wow. Whenever we get all wound up in ourselves, our lives, our failures or our successes, it might be time to step back and think about that “little dash” and how it relates to “eternity”.
The significance of that “dash” is remarkable, isn’t it? We all need to keep our lives in perspective. Sometimes that is hard to do, as the day-to-day exigencies tend to get in the way of what is really important.
Thanks for the eye-opening article, Lorelle.
