Scrooged is a comedy based on Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol. As mentioned, Frank Cross, Bill Murray, gets a visit from 3 ghosts of the past, present, and future. You now know them better as The Taxi Driver, The Fairy, and Death. This movie and story does paint a dark picture. There is truth in that in our future all of us are going to die. However, hopefully in this COT we can shed some light on it and what we do about it.
This made me think about the What-What in F3. The What-What are the two questions in F3 we ask about Faith. 1) What happens when we die and 2) What does that mean in how I live my life today?
Think about that…
“Choice is your greatest asset”.
The point here is we all have great power in the choices we make. Some of you contributed to today by making a choice in showing up and especially in making a choice to share your thoughts and ideas. There is great impact that can come in all the choices we make.
So back to the What-What…1) What happens when I die and 2) What does that mean in how I live my life today?
So I choose to close with a poem and leave it to you to answer these two questions in the What-What…
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
Remember, choice is your greatest asset.
Blessed and honored – Lancelot
