Gone

If you were gone today, how many people would miss you? Truly miss you?

If you were gone today, what would be said about you? Would it matter to you what others say?

If you were gone today, would you regret anything?

We do not know how many days we have to love, forgive, wonder and dream. Do not waste one more second hestitating to hug, smile and befriend a stranger. Be an angel to the lost and lonely, not seeking anything in return, but simply encouraging them to be.

If you were gone today, would your loved ones be able to manage? Do they know when to pay the bills, feed the dog and clean the toilets?

If you were gone today, how would your family remember you? Honor you?

If you were gone today, would they regret anything?

We can only live one day at a time. Worry brings nothing but takes everything. Live!

PRAYER: Lord, teach me to number my days. Give me wisdom where I fail to understand. Give me courage to break free of this world and not worry what others think. Let me be a loving person, willing to forgive, able to heal wounds of my own and others and truly be an instrument of your will. Let peace reign in my heart, let me be covered in your presence and awaken the hardened hearts and souls.
