We all know the song 'Loch Lomond' and many have seen that lovely lake in Scotland. The songs says, "Me and my true love will never part again, on the bonny bonny banks of Loch Lomond." It's not true, of course. Even in the moment a couple is joined in marriage, we say in our wedding ceremony, "till death do us part." We join them only for "so long as you both shall live."
Since death is certain, it would be foolish not to prepare for it. Since life
is uncertain, it would be foolish to concentrate all our attention on it.
Two farmers were discussing a lifetime. One said he had inherited his farm. The
second said, "No, he only inherited it for his lifetime." The first
responded, "Who'd want it any longer?"
