When "J" got the news from the doctor, his response was the best paraphrase of Paul that I've ever heard:
"Well, I got friends and family here - and I love them a lot. And I got friends and family in heaven - and I love them and miss them a lot. So I figure either way, I win!"Romans 14:8:
"If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's."Either way ... we win!
