Life Is a Gift

In the midst of this darkness my heart rejoices because I see life as a gift. I could
have died, but I didn't. So many things could have happened to me, but I'm still

In candid interviews, terminal patients in the Alive Hospice program talked with authors Bob and Judy Fisher, addressing some of the most important questions we ask about our life and how we've made the journey. These end-of-life ponderings are collected into inspirational and provoking thoughts that will encourage each of us to live life fully. Each story is reflected in thematic chapters-priorities, family, simple pleasures, romance, integrity, regret, forgiveness-crafted into a series of "lessons learned," offering motivation to approach life with more vigor. These powerful stories deliver the clear message that if you wait to really live until you know you are going to die, you risk missing much of the joy life has to offer and the chance to leave a positive legacy.

Gift of Life

mind also for what will be explained concerning artificial human procreation . 33 .

In 1987, the Vatican presented a document, The Instruction on respect for human life in its origin and on the dignity of procreation, confronting the moral dilemmas inherent in the newer reproductive technologies. These papers, first presented at a conference at Georgetown U., consider the clinical and technical aspects, the moral-theological foundations, and the impact on legislation and public policy of these reproductive technologies in light of the Vatican Instruction, which is also included.

almost any language except English (and if it means thanks it implies gift).
