Unfortunately, most of us assume that those who have been around a long time are closer to meeting their maker than those who haven’t been around so long. Ultimately, though, no one of us, regardless of age, is more than a heartbeat away from meeting our maker. This applies to all of us, all the time. One heartbeat! Now the question is: What will I do/where will I be when that last heartbeat is done? No one can answer that question for anyone else, only for themselves. We pray that all have answered it affirmatively for GOD’s love and grace!
A good friend, long deceased, often quoted, “Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver, the other is Gold!”
She also quoted, “Life is like a checkbook: Yesterday is a cancelled check. Tomorrow is a promissory note you may not live to collect. Today is cash in hand. Use it wisely!”
Thank you, Don!
Doing GOD’s way in the time GOD has provided is what we should have in our safe, donchaknow. That’s what I get in my Box of Chocolates. AMEN
