Shakespeare definitely had it right when he said, "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts..." I think it's forgotten from time to time that we all have a part to play in this world. We never fully understand what our sole purpose is, but we will see other's. Friends, family, and even total strangers help paint an astounding picture of who we are. The epic thought of the stranger next to us is shadowed by the simplicity of the word stranger. Just like a friend or family member, they have a purpose in your life. Whether it be for the moment you're experiencing or another fateful encounter. There is a part that human being is playing in the stage of your life. Cherish every moment you spend in life, you never know when your last curtain call will be.
Jeremiah 29:11 (The Message)
I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out-plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.
In Memory of a father, a grandfather, a husband, a brother, a son, the humble, the caring, the security, the direction, the best tour bus driver I've ever seen. He'd give you the shirt off his back, and today I take my hat off to you. My life will be forever changed because of you friend.
Paul Trice, I love you and I will never forget you.
