Life is Precious

We should all know that life is a blessing, a gift to be cherished. We should all know that we need not live this life in the hours and minutes, but in the pleasure of the moment. A couple of weeks ago, I lost control of my car and it flipped over twice and spun across the busy 4 lane interstate, missing every car coming my way during morning rush hour. Even the ones going over 70 mph. The cops looked at me like I was ghost; it shocked the color out of his face to see me alive. To see me with only a cut on my scalp and gash on my pinky finger. They say I’m lucky; I say I’m a blessed sinner. An angel was with me that morning.

But it saddens my heart to say a different kind of angel visited a friend of mine last night. The Lord called her baby back Home before he could could even fathom what the words life, pleasure, blessing could me to a sinner like me.

This is why we must treasure our lives in the moment, not the yesterdays, the tomorrows or even the later-ons. We must hold on to each breath. To each laugh. To each other. To each moment. Because we never know when it’ll be our last.

May God Bless,

  1. Wow. I’d say, just from reading this post, that, yes, you are blessed to still be alive. Sounds scary.

    Sorry about the loss of your friend. I understand what it’s like to lose a friend. It definitely makes one understand how so not promised life really is.

    Stay blessed, strong.
