The Term of an Enlisted Soldier

Bill’s visitation was full of laughter. He rested peacefully as if taking a nap. Our eyes filled with tears but didn’t spill over in despair. We know we will see him again. We will sing together and play together again.

Bill was a good soldier. Had he not died on Saturday, he would have played on Sunday. He lived each day to its fullest.

Isaiah 16:14, “…no longer than the term of an enlisted soldier, …” The Message

“No life is too short or too long. You will live your prescribed number of days. You might change the quality of your days but not the quantity, (Psalms 139:16).”
