    Hmmm... Had a hard time with some of the answers.

    Here's the way I want to answer it:

    Often. Eternal Values help me to stay focused on right and wrong in my daily life.

     Often. And I pray for my loved ones who are lost.

     Often. I'm also very interested in the here and now. (Answer not available in the poll.)

    I'm not all that old (55) but in poor health and great pain. Not sure what God is doing.

    But one thing for certain - I think about eternity ALL the time. Sure a different perspective from 30 years ago!

    Often. And I pray for my loved ones who are lost.

    However, I am not so focused on Heaven that I neglect my life on Earth.

    I am looking forward to the "sweet by and by", but I think Christians are allowed to have happiness in the "here and now" also...

    God came to give life and give it more abundantly.

    Here's one you forgot. Often, I pray for my lost loved ones, and witness to them.

    I answered "sometimes . . .". I happen to think the often are the good answers and where I should be . . .but I was being honest.
