I met up with my oldest daughter yesterday and we went through pictures, reread old letters, talked about good times spent with her dad, ate crepes (he was notorious...around here anyway...for the beautiful crepes that he would create), and drank hot tea. It was a week to the day of his passing. Sadly, he was in Canada and we are here, so there was really nothing else to do but what we did. As hard as it is, we must choose to believe that it is enough.
Sadly, my daughter's dad died on his 61st birthday from an accidental overdose. Drug addiction is a terrible thing and it causes a lot of heartache and pain, not only for the one that is addicted, but to those that love them, as well.
In thinking about all of this and trying to digest it, I realize that, no matter who we are or what we're doing, in the big scope of things, time is short for all of us. My advice is to everyone is, get your affairs in order...not only in this world, but, even more importantly, in the one to come.
Many choose not to believe it, but heaven and hell are real. It is what you choose to do with Jesus in this life that will determine your eternal destiny. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and, whether people choose to believe it or not, He is the only way to the Father. Do you know Him? If not, don't put it off.
If you find that you just can't quite believe, then seek! Challenge the Lord! Ask Him to make Himself real to you. I guarantee you that He will do it! Stop being afraid. Let yourself go and step out in faith. And, if you want someone to pray with you or to talk with you more about this, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Don't delay! Sometimes death comes suddenly and without warning. Don't be caught in the enemy's crosshairs should it come to you today.
Until next time...
