I’m with my sister today…and we sat together to play a Scrabble game online and make a memory.
My precious Boo was a wordsmith among wordsmiths at one time. Now, she is good to find a simple one syllable word. It is humbling to sit next to her knowing you are making a memory with her…no…it is not exciting or seemingly challenging but it IS time with her which is precious to me and more exciting and more inviting than watching a program on TV or even playing on social media. Also it was humbling as we both struggled to make words out of the many letters presented to us…Only a little over a year ago our oldest sister moved to heaven. It was hard to imagine not having her to visit and now it is a reality and a memory.
Here I sit next to another sister who was and still is one of my biggest supporters in life and ministry. Our own frailty is clear and our short time on the planet is also just as clear. I just want to encourage you today to look around you – smile that smile – say that kind word – write that encouraging note – say that difficult thank you. One never knows when our own last day will arrive and I can tell you – it is better to have no regrets than to wish you had….and if there is such a thing as a face to face with Jesus….wouldn’t it be better to face Him after a moment of kindness than avoidance of making a memory? SELAH (Think about it.)
Until next time – #BeBraver Be Kind – Be Loving – Be good to eat ….and make a memory.
Here is a video pertinent to the topic – hope you enjoy this short excerpt from my life:
