Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
Thank you for your comments, emails and notes of encouragement following my previous post. Dying young is different for everyone – some will say to die before graduation of college is too young, others will tell you anything less than 100 is young. Regardless of where you fall on this spectrum ~ I pray you live your life every day as if tomorrow doesn’t come.
Make choices that bring you joy and put a smile on God’s face. Don’t make rash decisions or do foolish and hurtful things BUT look to God for guidance. How can you live to be a witness of God’s love to others? Have you shared Jesus with your friends and family? Are you reading your Bible daily? Are you sharing and exhibiting joy to the people around you? Are you being the person God has called you to be? What does your legacy look like?
The Holy Spirit tickled my heart during Sunday school and church for this blog. The conversation with my husband and daughter on the way home and then over lunch with my parents brought about a clearer direction. The afternoon concluded with a walk through the New Haven cemetery. With my daughter by my side we walked and talked from one side of the cemetery to the other. My Aunt Nancy and I would spend countless hours doing this same thing. I could hear her say, “No one will remember what you did fifty years from today if you don’t write it down.” She would share the stories and history she knew of the various headstones and encouraged me to never forget the past, “It is what makes you who you are today.”
What if tomorrow never comes? Will Jesus open His arms and say “Well done…” and welcome you to an eternity of joy and beauty? You have that choice…
Take a few minutes to start the youtube video of Kenny Chesney and then watch photos taken during our walk through the cemetary...a reminder if tomorrow doesn't come ~ it isn't about the words on the headstone but the reception you might receive from Jesus. If tomorrow doesn't come...where will you be?
