Listen to this dreary inscription on a gravestone in Britain near Windsor Castle:

Pause, my friend, as you walk by;

As you are now, so once was I

As I am now, so you will be.

Prepare, my friend, to follow me!

A visitor was overheard adding these lines:

To follow you is not my intent,

Until I know which way you went![16]

We can know where we’re going and live in a joyful anticipation of tomorrow. (From: Warren Wiersbe, Be Ready (Wheaton, Illinois: SP Publications, Inc., 1979) p. 93)
