The Last Time

James 4:14 - 15 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow.  You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.  Instead, you ought to say, "If   the Lord wills , we will live and do this or that. " The reality of this hit home to us onJan 5 at 9:18 a.m.  Wayne had a stroke.  At the time it was a surreal experience.  I was not thinking of anything but getting him the help he needed and trusting God to take care of the details. Thankfully all the tests are coming back normal showing no damage from this event, he is back to normal for the most part except that he is very tired and is needing to change his lifestyle.  As I pondered the whole experience I became rather melancholy.   My thoughts turned to the last things we did together before this happened.   So I want to encourage you to think a bit.  Someday you will say good morning to your loved ones for the last time,  you will fix them a last meal or go to work the last time, you will have your last argument, say you love them the last time, make love for the last time, give a gift the last time, hug them the last time, say good night for the last time.  My question is how do you want them to remember the last time?  Do you get the point?  Life  is truly a vapor and we have so little time to make a difference, lets commit our ways to the Lord and trust Him to manifest Jesus in and through us so that we will have no regrets.
Much love,
