Mortality

I know that everyone experiences loss within their family, their friends, through the loss of someone they’ve admired, maybe just witnessing a tragedy, and it just seems like in those places all around there has been so much death lately.  I don’t mean this to be a morbid note (even though it seems to have started that way)
Realistically, all of this has brought me to doing some systematic thinking about my own life, and why I am who and how I am.  
I have been thinking a lot more about heaven beyond here, and also the reality of what it would really be like to be in hell.  Hell is real and every day people are going there.  The little sinful cravings of this life seem so stupid in light of eternity.  The selfishness, and want for more stuff, the size of your speakers in your car, the number of black tshirts that you own, the quality of your laptop, the 20 bucks that you know for sure you left in a pair of pants, the agonizing over what to eat and what not to eat, the speed of the route you take to work, your to do list, all of this stuff just pauses when you consider eternity.  
I’m not one of those guys who says, “Chunk it all away and let’s just wait for eternity” but I’m repenting of the fact that I get so focused on the here and now that I am numb to the eternal.  So I guess I want the eyes to see the bigger and still manage to shower occasionally
