Recently a lady that I knew passed away suddenly. It was a shock to all that knew her and to this day I still can't believe she is gone. I stood at her wake and watched family members shed tears, people kneel as they said a silent prayer towards heaven, and tried so very hard to fight back my own tears. I just couldn't believe that I just saw her, talked to her, and now she is gone.

It really got me thinking. I have always heard and know that it in the Bible it says that tomorrow is not promised to any of us. I don't want to sound so morbid, but none of us know when it will be our time to leave this earth. Sometimes we go through life thinking that we have all the time in the world to accomplish our goals and dreams. Which in some ways we do, but in reality.....you never know. 

So why not live everyday like its your last? Why put off what you can do today, this moment, this second for another day that may never come. If you were told you only had one day left to live and you could do anything you wanted, what would you do? Here are a few ideas. Spend time with your kids everyday in such a way that leaves an everlasting imprint on their hearts. Embrace your husband or wife and love them like you have never loved before. Write the greatest poetry you have ever written so that it can be published one day for generations to come to read. See your children that live in different places and tell them how much you love them. Close the world out and have a day where it is just you and your family making sweet memories. Dance like no one is watching you and write love notes to those you love. If there are people that have impacted your life, tell them face to face, in a letter, or by a gentle embrace. Stand in the rain on a warm summer day and smell the beauty of God. Worship the God with everything within you and throw a huge celebration just to be around friends and family to smile and laugh, love and dream.

Speaking of dream......stop dreaming and start living! Every new day is a perfect opportunity to make it a monumental day! In the stress and chaos of life,  please...don't forget to live!

Just a thought!
