Have you ever noticed, that no matter what’s happening, in your life or mine, the earth continues to rotate? For some time stands still. Frozen in time. Their life will be forever changed and those of us around them cannot begin to fathom the imprints that will be left in their hearts or memories.


Like the petals of a rose, life is fragile. It’s a gift! Given to us by the One who created the heavens and the earth. Who also flung the stars into the universe with His fingertips.


Let’s not throw it away or cast it aside like something that has lost it’s beauty.


But choose to live it by loving those He’s placed within our reach.


Life should not be spent in a cage. “To stay behind bars until use and old age accept them. And all chance of valor has gone beyond recall or desire.”


But instead, it should be spent in laughter and joyfulness while bringing comfort to those who are in sorrow.

Is there someone you love that you forgot to tell today? Don’t let time slip by before you do…for it is but a vapor that vanishes without warning.

And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan, has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat.
But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me,
strengthen your brethren.”
Luke 22: 12

Do you ever feel as if nothing is going right in your life and whatever you do, a road block is put in your way? I know that many times in my life I’ve been there and it’s because of this particular passage of scripture that I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that I can continue and that I will find the strength to prevail because the Creator of the universe
is praying for me…just as He is praying for you.

May you find encouragement today for whatever task is set before you.
