Life's Road

by Paul M. Carhart


When all is said and done
When I stand before The Throne
What will matter most?
My job? My friends? My home?

Or is it more example?
The way I treat each person
The way in which I reach out
No matter what the season

Perhaps it's partly all of this
For that's where life is found
In death we rise to heaven
Life's road is on the ground

Notes:

It's been said that, on the deathbed, no one wishes they would have spent more time at the office.

Just some simple thoughts about how we should treat each other.
