Not taking one day for granted

If God decided to take you home today or tomorrow or whenever it’s your time to go. Would you be ready? Would you have done what you were expected to do on this earth. Yesterday one of my best friends was in a car accident. Without thinking yesterday she called me. I picked up the phone and heard someone ask her “Are you ok and do you need to go to the hospital? I heard her said no. I tried calling back and no answer. A couple of minutes later I clued in that she must have been in a car accident. I text her and asked and she said yes and I asked if I could help her and she said a mutual friend was coming to get her. For seven hours yesterday I had no idea what was happening other then she was at the hospital getting checked out. I could not go and sit with her because the hospital was full of people visitors were not allowed in. I had to wait and trust that she was ok. I immediately sent out messages to all my prayer warrior friends to pray.

God looked after her yesterday because that accident could have gone so wrong in so many ways. She walked out of her truck that was totalled and she was given a clear bill of health from the doctors. All she got was a small bruise on her knee. She was very shaken up but that’s not surprising. Angels were looking out for her yesterday. I had to trust last night she was ok. After she was ok physically I was so Thankful that she lived. I realized that I have not told her in a while how much I love her and that how important our friendship is to me.

This morning over coffee I was reflecting on life and was thinking of God took me home tomorrow would I be ready to go home. Would I have done everything I needed to do in this earth. I realized that I live a life that is full of love for everyone no matter who they are or what color their skin is. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control…” I have joy in my life and try to find joy in all things. I often feel the peace of God in my life which peace only comes from Him. I try to patient with everyone especially the children I work with. Sometimes I need more help with this. Kindness is showing others how you care for them in all situations. Generosity I’m generous with my time for others and love giving others gifts. I have huge faith because of what I endured as a child and have seen many miracles in the Lord. I’m still working on gentleness and self control.

I would like to think I would be ready. I told my friend today that God has not finished your story yet and she agreed. Give your family an extra hug tonight or tomorrow and tell them how much you love and appreciate them. When this happens it puts life into perspective and I realize how precious every day is. I don’t want to take advantage of any day. I want to live my life to the fullest everyday. Thank you Lord for keeping my friend safe yesterday. ❤️
