This Day and That Day
There are only two days to worry about: this day and That Day. If you don't know what that Day is then you are probably not ready for it. Today, a family buried their mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, great-grandmother. Three days shy of completing her 83rd year on earth, my wife's grandmother took her final step toward that Day. Today, those 83 years were distilled into an essence. Her essence was faithfulness. She bore the fruit of the Spirit of love. She commended the Faith and the Gospel of Christ by a life well-lived before God and in the midst of her community, church, and family. We know she had prepared for that Day because it was so evident. At the last, it was her prayer to go on and be with the Lord. She was not afraid. Now she is in the presence of Jesus, her body now awaiting the Trumpet. And soon, we will lay waiting as well.
There are only two days to worry about: this day and That Day. Live this day for that Day. You will not be disappointed.
