My husband and I were talking last night and he had some great things to say, so I had him write a post.
I believe that there's more to this life than just living and dying on Earth. We have more potential than that. The only answer I can think of to explain it now is God.
You look at a child and how fast they learn and just imagine all the things they can do. It just seems like such a waste of a perfectly good life to watch someone grow like that then just die. You can even consider some of the great accomplishments specific individuals have made in the world, their talents and abilities. To say that is all gone just because their physical body couldn't contain their spirit anymore, again it just seems like such a waste.
Everybody has potential, it's just a matter of the choices they make in life that may or may not show their potential. It's a matter of if you value your life or squander it.
