In all aspects of life we see these abandoned buildings. Many homes present the spectacle of abandoned dreams of love. For a time, the beautiful vision shone and two hearts tried to make it come true but they gave their dream up in despair, either enduring in misery or going their own sad and separate ways.
So life everywhere is full of beginnings, which are never carried on to completion.
"For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain!" Philippians 1:21
God will preserve me--as long as He has service for me to do. Beyond this, I have no great desire to live.
"I desire to depart and be with Christ which is better by far!" Philippians 1:23
