The sobering truth

Life has taken over and it seems harder and harder to find the time to blog nowadays.  Last Sunday, I had the honor of helping  a friend prepare for her mother's memorial service.  This dear woman who passed away was an incredible musician & vocalist with an incredible love for the gospel & music.

As I placed  momentos of  her life, sheet music, pictures, hand written letters,  on the table along with flowers here and there, the only thought that could run through my mind was, "What will my life say about me? Will I too live a full life?  Will I be happy with the decisions I made on my journey here on earth?  Will the peopole I encounter be impacted for eternity?"

The truth is there is but a short span of time from when we are born until we take our final breath.  Will all the things that we give ourselves to matter when our life comes to an end?  Will the things that consume us matter in eternity?  Are there things in our lives that we should let go of now?  Are there things that we should cling tightly to?   Are there things that we are placing too much value on, that when we really think about it, we should really let them go?  How will our lives count?  What will the momentos we leave behind say about us?
