Do you find as you get older that you begin to reflect on your life? Does life seem to be slipping away too quickly? Does it seem like you were just 18 years old yesterday and ready to leave your parents house? The next thing you know you are 40, then 50 and on up the age ladder you wander. As this life passes quickly do you reflect on what you have done, or how happy you have been? Do you wonder when you will be gone and become only a memory in someone’s mind? Most of us with a little age under our belts do think about the end of our life.
At times I look through picture albums (yes, some of us still have those) and review the life I have lived to this point. I think, wow, I have had a busy life, but where has it gone. You wonder how many days or years you have left on this earth. You question whether you have spent your life doing what was expected of you, if you helped others enough. You think did I love enough, was I happy, was I kind, was I the person I should have been.
Take the years God gives you on this earth and live them in the best possible way. Never take life for granted. Life is fragile. Live today to the fullest, because as horrible as it may be to think about it, we may not have tomorrow.
