This is not a declaration of foolish faith. This is a reality check for me- and maybe for you, if you need it.
I can live in a state of suspended animation/ suspended life–or I can choose to engage in the life I have, right now, where I am living it, as it unfolds.
I am not going to get these moments, good or bad, exciting or simple, ever again. They are only here for the blink of an eye and then they are gone. I can celebrate where I am or mourn where I am not.
So I am going to celebrate today –what I am, the people in my life, the choices I made today and the opportunity I may have tomorrow. Most of all, I am going to celebrate the God who has given these moments to me. They are mine. I can embrace them or I can toss them away because they aren’t what someone else may have been given. I have been given my life, not someone else’s.
Today, today, it’s all or nothing…
