While I was driving to and from the guest ranch in Arizona, I listened to a few of the Chronicles of Narnia, including The Last Battle. I ran across a great quote there I had forgotten. But I have decided I want this on my tombstone.
Aslan is speaking. He has just told the characters that they have died and are in Heaven. And he says:
"The term has ended. The holiday has begun."
If that doesn't sum up life on earth vs. life in Heaven, I don't know what does. And that's why I want it on my tombstone/plaque/whatever I get.
