From the Desk
Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
I am pretty sure I’ve written about timing before.. but here I am writing about it again. I feel God screaming at my fingers to type and my brain: so here we go….
We all know time doesn’t stop. The hours, days, years all go by and it doesn’t stop for anyone. And if we look at the BIG picture we can see how fast time goes. If you have children, I’m sure you ask yourself where the time went- however when your child was really small I’m sure you’re thinking the days and nights last forever. Someone once told me this, “the days are long, but the years are short.” I couldn’t agree more with that!
Recently, one of my best friends lost her nine year old son- and when she got the news as well as myself I feel that time literally stopped, but it didn’t. When something traumatic happens such as that, it’s a harsh reminder of how short and precious life is.
Life can end for you or a loved one in a blink of an eye. If you weren’t here tomorrow, but had the opportunity to look back on your last day of life- would you be proud of the way you lived it?
Life isn’t easy, but it’s worth living. Not everyday will be full of sunshine and rainbows- but every day is a gift and God wants us to make the best of it.
Hug your loved ones tight, laugh when something is funny, cry when you’re sad, but most importantly see the beauty in every day.
