Last Friday I got news that stopped me in my tracks. . A friend who I went to school passed away from complications during surgery. I could not believe it. I had know Trent all my life. We were were in every class together from kindergarten to high school. He was only 32.
This tragedy get me thinking. If I knew today was my last day here on Earth what would I do differently.?
Here are some thing that I realized. It doesn't really matter that i have the latest and best things. I can't take them with me when I go.. I've never seen a U-Hall behind a Hurst
Would my friends and loved ones really know how I feel about them? Would I let arguments or my pride keep me from telling people how I love and what the mean to me? People don't know how much you care unless you show them
If something happened to me tomorrow would my family be taken care of? I wouldn't want my family to have to worry about my bills or debts. Nor would I want them to have to deal with planning/paying for my funeral on top of dealing with me being gone. Plan ahead
Well Trent I hope you are in a better place and thank you for reminding me that tomorrow is not guaranteed.
Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.Psalm 90:12
