If You Only Had One Day Left
Do you ever read something that seems to just reach out and grab you? I was browsing my favorite blogger sites since I have been traveling for several weeks and wanted to catch up. One of them just stopped me in my tracks.
Tim from Dooley Noted posted about what If You Only Had One Day Left to live…. What would you do different? Would you really have time to make any changes?
I have been doing research on old records trying to help my aunt learn a little more about her mom (my grandmother) who has passed away and yet is still such a strong force in both of our lives.
For me, my grandmother Mae was the person responsible for me learning about Jesus as a child. She made sure I understood that I could talk with God when I was lonely, happy, sad, scared or in trouble! She prayed with me and always took the time to read the Bible with me.
She passed away in 1987. It still hurts…A LOT. She will be waiting for me in Heaven. I am sure of this…just as sure as I am that I want everyone in my life to be there too.
That is what struck a chord in me while reading Tim’s article. Today was my grandmother’s birthday. She would have wanted nothing more than to have spent the day with family and friends….unless there was a gospel meeting going on at the church building. Then, her birthday could wait; because being around Christian friends and praising God would have put a smile on her face and a song in her heart!
We don’t have the promise of tomorrow. Live today as if it was your last…Make every moment count. You never know when both those statements could be true.
