Life is Short

James 4:14
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.

This week it has really hit home how life can change at a moment’s notice.  My friend’s dad went to be with the Lord suddenly three days ago. 

Her parents were married for 50 years, a great example to all who observed their relationship.  They were best friends.  Her mom has no regrets about what she didn’t say or what she should have done.   

I know my friend’s dad is in heaven rejoicing, but those of us here have to adjust to not having him around.  He had such a gentle spirit and was kind to all around. 

In contemplating life and all it holds, this incident has made me want to live every day to the full, to have no regrets, to communicate with those I love and to let them know how I feel. 

Join with me this week in remembering that life is just a mere mist.  Don’t take for granted your loved ones and friends.  Treat each other with the utmost respect and love and share your heart with them.
