October is nearly over. Only TWO months left in 2017. This year has flown by.
I’ve been thinking about my health a lot lately. I need to lose a fair number of pounds. I weigh considerably more than I did when I was nine months pregnant with any of my children. I hate the way the extra pounds make me feel. But apparently I don’t hate it enough to stop drinking sodas or eating sweets. That is something I plan to change.
And then I found out that a friend of mine, someone I consider a close friend though she lives a number of miles from me, had a medical emergency last night and has been hospitalized. It has affected me more than I would have imagined. As I ended my Saturday on the computer, I read that another acquaintance/writing friend had passed away. It reiterates my need to take care of the temple that God has given me to use for the years I’m on earth.
We each have seasons in our lives. I was talking to someone about that at church just last week. Sometimes the seasons are dry, and we feel like God has forgotten us. At other times, we can see His touch in everything and feel Him everywhere we go. And then there are the in between times of normalcy (if there even is such a thing).
One thing that stands out more than any other today, and I’m sure it’s not anything new to you. LIFE is SHORT. Every moment we have must be used wisely.
Have you ever had a light-bulb moment about your days on earth? Maybe after a car accident or the death of a friend or loved one? What did you learn? Have you continued to apply it to your life? I know these are deep questions for a Sunday Edition. Usually, I try to keep it light-hearted and fun, but I feel like I can’t be the only one who wonders these things. I can’t be the only one struggling.
And please, if you think of my friend, keep her and her family in your prayers.
