People Are Like Skyscrapers
Life, like skyscrapers, we are created, serve our purpose, then move out of the way for the next era. Because we are humans, though, we have the benefit of absorbing the beauty of the buildings we create.
Some buildings last longer than we do. Though, if we play our cards right, the impact we make while we are alive can last for generations .... longer than buildings.
Life is God's gift to us, what we do with our lives is our gift to God.
