Atheists deny the final destination. They affirm only what they can see and perceive immediately in front of them.
Hedonists try to enjoy the ride as much as possible because they’re not sure if there’s anything afterward.

Don’t make the trip your everything.
When her husband wasn’t doing well, she continued serving the Lord. When her friends counseled her to leave the church, she counseled them to come back to church. When her children didn’t do so well, she kept encouraging them to come back.
Blanca has been an amazing woman of faith. When others around get discouraged, make poor decisions and spout negativisms, she remains steadfast with her God. She’s a hero, as far as I’m concerned. I want to be like people like that.
