So, it’s Christmas. Wonderful holiday season.
I’ve enjoyed the time off from school very much, I’ve enjoyed family, and time with my very sweet boyfriend.
I found out a girl from my church died yesterday. We weren’t close, but she wasn’t much older than I am now. She was right in the middle of her life.. And when I found out the news yesterday… My little ole heart just broke in two.
She had brothers and sisters.
She had friends.
She had a little girl.
She had parents, a job, and plans.
But most often we forget.
We forget what happens when we live.
When we live, we must die, and we all have a time.. And it doesn’t matter if you’re ready or not, if it’s your time, that’s it.
All I could think about is if her life was right or not. Because that is the only thing that matters.
If you didn’t read right, let me say it again. THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS.
Death brings eternity. And eternity is forever, and ever. An where you go for the rest of time is determined now by your choices.
We all know our place with God. On the inside.
Please don’t leave earth without giving God a chance to come into your heart.
(end of preaching rant)
The point I wanted to vent about is, that God opened my eyes. And everyday we have is a gift. All the people in my life are blessings and every moment I get to smile and feel joy come from the inside of me and spill out is a gift. Every moment that I get to feel peace because I know where I’ll be when I leave earth is a gift.. The greatest gift of all.
So this Christmas is a very merry Christmas for me, because I’m more thankful than I’ve ever been in my whole entire life.
