Default were all on borrowed time

We all die, so imo we are all on borrowed time. We could die now...
If you were to go now would you regret anything?
How would you hope to go? Like in your sleep, making love, or helping others?
And are you ready?
Don't have to include this part but do you know where you think you will go when ya die? Yes or no...

I almost died once. And this month I lost 2 relatives a short number of years back. And I lost a 3rd close relative in this month as well. So this thread is to get people thinking please consider answering...

We'll , my my only regret is that there is no unlimited energy source in a battery form or size .
How I would choose to die would depend upon my physical condition . Pain , lack of mobility , a bourdon to others around me . But , if it was a low or no quality of life or hope , I,d choose some happy powerful drug . Die with a smile .

What I,d come back to or as , (the After-Life Thing) , a sex toy . That would kinda explain the unlimited , compact energy source .!

Yes......I know.....I,m sick !

Those that know a certain part of my story, know that I very well realize I'm living on borrowed time.

IDGAF HOW I go. My bigger concern is how I use the gift that's been given to me.

I would probably regret dying.

I have no doubt about where I will go...Jesus died for me. As far as how I go...it doesn't really matter.
Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

I try to live my life without any regrets. For example, I could easily regret choosing Okinawa as my first duty station, as it wasn't a great time, I basically hated it while I was there, and because of being stationed there, I missed out on a combat deployment or two (I enlisted specifically to go to war for our country).

However, I do NOT regret choosing Okinawa as my first duty station. I took leave at a specific time from the island, and while on leave, I met my first, current, and only, wife. I love her desperately and am convinced if I weren't on leave on that specific day I would likely not have met her. I likely would not have been on leave when I was if I were stationed in the States.

So, the short of it is, I try to live my life without regrets, because there can always be something good to come of any cruddy situation.

If I could choose how I would die, it would be peacefully in my bed, long after turning old and gray. I could be selfish and say I would like to go before my wife passes on, so I would never have to live without her. Or I could go the other way and say I hope I die right after her, so she never has to live without me. Either way, I would want to die peacefully in my bed.

Or go down in a blaze of fire and bullets and take as many of those SOBs with me as possible.

Like some others, I am guaranteed an eternal home by Jesus, so when my time comes, I'm ready.

As for 'how', I'd rather be doing 115 mph into a bridge abutment than to be in 'the home' with tubes stuffed - ahem - everywhere. But more than any of that, I want to die at my duty station, where ever, or doing whatever that might entail.

But I really need to arrange all my insurance policies into one heap for my survivors. Just to make life simple.
Finally back in the United States!

i put my faith in God along time ago, so dying is not a big fear, but want to stick around as long as God needs me here on earth.

but dying, i only hope i can do it with dignity, and surrounded by my loved ones and that i am not a burden to them in my later years.
