Okay so here I go with a second post. I'm on a roll! hehehe
What if you thought you only had a year left, or even two years left? Would you look at your daily life differently? I think we should all look at life that way, I mean none of us know the day nor the hour. For me it would be impractical to live every day as if it was truly my last, because if I truly believed it was my last day on this earth I would probably spend every moment of that day in prayer. Maybe in earnest solitude with the Lord, nothing else would compare than meeting my maker in that hour. However, thinking about a year left changes things. I want to live my life that way. What kind of a mother and wife would I be? What kind of sister in the Lord? Wouldn't I be better about making all of those phone calls? Maybe I would have more people in my home gathered around the dinner table talking on good things? Always squeezing in the "I love you's" that I already try to share. Of course the answer for me would be yes to all of the above, and honestly yes to alot more things not listed. I would probably let a lot of things go and be careful to never carry a grudge. I would remember to smile a lot, laugh, and rejoice in each day that I was given. Wouldn't that be a wonderful way to live out your last year? I am sure that if Den said Trina let's go here for church, or let's do this, I would be less selfish for my flesh and more anxious to live in the spirit. I know that I live my life more in the "that's not so convenient for me right now" mode. What a waste of time. I'm going to be more careful with my speech and more diligent to think and dwell on good things. I mean maybe I have 10-30 years left, or maybe today will be a day of judgement for me....I don't know...but I'm going to live my life one year at a time to strike a healthy harmonious balance. Every day counts when you only have 365 of them, right?
