Farewell to 2018

January 3, 2019

One of the things I always look for at the end of each year is a list of well-known people that have passed away during the current year. Sometimes I see names of people I didn’t know had left us, or people I had already forgotten about, or quite honestly, people I thought had passed away years ago. Then there are names we really want to remember. If you follow actors and actresses, maybe you remember this year Burt Reynolds and Margot Kidder passed away. If you are a music lover, you might know that Aretha Franklin and Roy Clark left us. There were also political figures, John McCain and George H.W. Bush. Some were still young like Rapper Mac Miller or Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. No doubt the one with the most impact for me was Dr. Billy Graham who went home to be with the Lord on February 21st at the age of 99.

 

Some of these folks had such a presence that we might think they would always be with us.  This should show us how quickly our lives on Earth pass by. What better way to approach the end of a year than by remembering the brevity of life and how quickly we could be gone from this world. I guess there are some lists we cannot avoid in this life, but one list we want to be sure to be on is the Lamb’s list!
