We have made a decision to seize our days. Too many times we have caught ourselves dreaming of some day. We have decided the time is now. We have mapped out a plan. Our lives have become encumbered. We are weeding out people, commitments and things that are draining us physically, spiritually and mentally. Deposits have been made, airline tickets booked, and rocking chairs placed on the front porch. Some day has arrived.
Our life here on earth is brief. If it were all we had to look forward to, we would be in a place of despair. Thankfully, we look forward to even a greater life after this earthly tour.
We are blessed with wonderful friends and much family. Time is too precious to waste. With the guidance of our Father, we hope to use it wisely. For three days in a row we have dined with friends. While we love these times together, we may have to form a plan to meet and move our feet opposed to the current meet and eat. Well, maybe when the weather is cooler.
“For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.” ~ James 4:14
