Happy Sunday! Wow, this week went by fast and I am happy! Barry was at a conference for most of the week, came home for a few hours then left again for his annual golf trip. I stayed busy babysitting Brooklyn this weekend, we did a lot of “girl” stuff – she is such a little diva! So much fun! LOL! We stopped by Claire’s and she was in “hog’s heaven”.
I was running errands this week and one stop was at Walmart. As I was leaving the store, there were about six other people walking out at the same time. I noticed everyone following each other out the Enter door and I was the only one that walked out the Exit door. I felt kind of lonely for a second for going out of the correct door. Then a scripture came to mind…
Matthew 7:13 KJV
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
How easy is it to keep our heads down and go with the flow. We have to be mindful of the path we are on and diligent in seeking the correct Exit that ultimately leads us to our final destination. The path is narrow and few will trod down that road.
I tried to explain eternity to my children when they were smaller and I would use one of those really long drop cords. I would tell them to pretend the drop cord is our lives on Earth and the rest was eternity. I stretched out the drop cord so they would have a visual, then I took about 5 inches at the beginning of the drop cord and said, this is your life here on Earth and the rest is eternity. Where do you want to spend that eternity and is that 5 inches worth the other 11 1/2 feet?
My kids needed visuals growing up and I need them at time myself, the kids will reference that day I explained eternity to this day. So I know it made an impact in their minds.
Live your life today, to reap the rewards of tomorrow.
The way the world is today, we need to remind ourselves that we don’t have to go with “the crowd”. I personally want to make this short time on Earth matter, not only for eternity but to make sure I live each day in a way that I will be proud of. Some days that is getting up and putting on my clothes, let’s face facts! Other days it is much more meaningful and rewarding – I like those days!
The world will always need a little more kindness and little more love, but we will never need more hate and division.
