We have to learn never to expect anything,
and when it comes it's no more than a gift on loan.
Everything's on loan, for one day we shall die, and we will take nothing with us but the lessons that we've learned while we've been here
This is the day our family will gather for the funeral home visitation for my darling precious grandson. It will be a very private visit with only near family there. The weather has cleared up considerably and for that I’m extremely thankful as we have so many traveling at this time.
The thoughts and quotes in today’s entry are probably repeats from a previous post, but I thought they were fitting words for today. I’m at such a loss right now for anything much to say.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Many of us cannot grasp the truth that the time allotted to us
on this earth is sufficient for all the Lord has planned for us to do.
We don’t need one minute more or one minute less to get the job done:
Our greatest fear is running out of time.
So we hurry through life trying desperately to get everything done: working overtime, eating fast food in the car, and racing down the freeway. . . .
Today, this very day, why don’t you think of something that takes a bit of extra time to do and do it. . . .
Maybe it will be an act of generosity or a moment of kindness directed towards a loved one or a stranger.
Perhaps it will be simply singing a hymn of praise and thanksgiving because your heart is so full of gratitude.
Don’t wait for another time.
Rejoice in this day and be glad.
