"Our days are numbered. One of the primary goals in our lives should be to prepare for our last day.
The legacy we leave is not just in our possessions, but in the quality of our lives. What preparations should we be making now?
The greatest waste in all of our earth, which cannot be recycled or reclaimed, is our waste of the time that God has given us each day."

Billy Graham
