Thought for the Day


          . . . you can't beat death but
          you can beat death in life, sometimes.
          and the more often you learn to do it,
          the more light there will be. . . .
          ~ From "The Laughing Heart" by Charles Bukowski

When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

1 Corinthians 15:54
