LIVE LIKE THERE IS NO TOMORROW


A friend of mine passed away from a lengthy battle with cancer this morning. She leaves behind a husband and four children. If you pray, please pray for this family. They are a family of God and I believe Tammy is soaring in heaven along with my brother, and family. This seems a perfect time for me to say words that I think of very often, but do not voice them; but now I will.

LIVE LIKE THERE IS NO TOMORROW

What is important?

A smile on their face?

Making lots of money?

Spending an hour or so

With those we care about?

Quit arguing! quit the spite!

Look around you,

It can be gone

In a blink of an eye.

Don’t worry about the extras,

You aren’t taking it

With you anyways.

Look them in the eye

Touch a shoulder

Give a hug.

This is what is important.

You never know

When your time is up,

Or when that person will leave.

Don’t be the one who says,

“I saw them yesterday”.

Don’t cry over words

You should have said.

Do it now, live for today!

Love as if there will

Never be another moment.
