Time is GAINING on some of us….Twilight time is just around the corner…the party is just about over. One cold morning, our spouse will wake to the warmth of our bed knowing that we’re gone. There will be NO more hugs, NO special moments, and NO more chats. All the “I love you” are now history….all part of memories.
What we care for is gone… before we can say good-by. While we have the OPPORTUNITY …we should LOVE it, FIX… it when broken, and HEAL it… when sick. This is true for marriage, old cars; children with bad grades, dogs with bad hips, and aging parents, who sometimes drive you crazy.
Hang on to them… because they’re worth it… like a best friend who moved on, or a daughter-in-law after divorce. Life’s important, like the people who are special in your life…. we MUST keep them close to our heart…. holding on to the “good memories,” and forgiving… and forgetting the bad.
One day we won’t be waking up, as we’re so ACCUSTOMED to doing. Does everyone (those who matter) know how you feel about this… or that? It’s important to let everyone know your true feelings… now… and again…. less the time runs out… unexpectedly.
So, just in case…. If I’m not here… tomorrow, or the next….then rest assured… if I were to be here… in November 2016…I’d be VOTING for the “winner.” …………..(just a little humor).
Remember what is said in Mark 13: 32-33 – But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. “Take heed, keep on the alert; for you do not know when the appointed time will come. …Blessings…cjlb…..9/30/15.
