Life is Precious

I do not want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.

Life is so precious. Those of us whom are blessed enough to enjoy another birthday should acknowledge just how precious it truly is. Last night, I sat down and watched Letters to God with my little Mason and the tears started rolling down. It's a true story of a boy named Tyler who has cancer and reaches out to God by writing letters to Him. Just the thought of losing a child leaves me absolutely heartbroken. I think of all the families going through it and I know that all I can do is pray my heart out that it never happens to one of my own. Then this morning I came across another tragic story of a mother who went into labor at 21 weeks with twins. Sadly, the babies did not survive and a few days later they were joined in Heaven by their mother. She had gone into cardiac arrest after delivering. She was a beautiful young lady. It just goes to show that you never know what lies ahead and when your time will come.


Lives taken too soon should be testaments for us to live life to the fullest and to not frown upon turning another year older. Each day we get to open our eyes is a blessing. So, open your eyes and see the beauty that God has put in front of you.

Miti,

This is something that God revealed to me this morning in my prayers that each day is to be thought of as a gift instead of dwelling on the things we don't have, problems that still await us, and the time God has given us should be considered as a present or a gift. Too many of us, forget to live today and instead look back on yesterdays with regrets and tomorrow with hope or dread.

Let us all live in the lengths and widths of our day, thanking God for it.

Actress wants to see that movie too. I plan on getting her that for Christmas. Life is so precious and sometimes we just take it for granted.
