Each of us will finish the race of life. That fact is settled. How we finish is largely up to us...and the choices we make, the mid-course corrections we courageously act on and the perception of the end of the race and what lies beyond we hold to. Read verses. Some finish with lament and regret. Illustrate: Some finish well, with integrity, gratitude, and a sacred anticipation of who and what lies beyond the finish line.
