Nothing lasts forever even the gold and silver we struggle and slave for. All the nice things we amass in our life time are all part of that which is transient and unimportant. Investing in that which is temporary and unimportant is the action of the foolish and the blind. Be kind and generous to yourself but always have the right sort of priorities at the forefront of your thoughts and actions. Never be afraid to take up the challenge to follow Jesus even when it means having to leave some of that which is transient behind you..... Margaret Theresa Naughton
