I have so many things I want to do in this lifetime, don’t you? Things that I don’t want to miss, things I want to see or do, places to go. I have started to ask myself what if there is not enough time. I am not a spring chicken anymore! And I have to deal with pain in my body due to low back issues and a few other things that come with aging. What if my body stops me from being able to do the things I want to do? We are only given so much time in this lifetime, how can I possibly fit it all in?
I want to be as successful as possible in my career, I want to travel to far-away places, I want to retire at a home by the beach, I want to fall in love again someday, I want to build my own business, I want to write a book, I want to reach out and spread God’s word to the lost souls of the world. I want to volunteer and help the needy. I want to make a difference, leave my mark. I want to teach my children everything I know and more. I want to have my funeral planned so they never have to be concerned with that. I want to have time to just relax yet I want to keep going. I want to do it all but what if there is not enough years, or enough time? What if I miss out on something? What if I don’t get to see something amazing? What if I never find the love of my life?
Nobody really knows how much time we each have so I will choose now to live each day to its fullest, cup running over and not waste an ounce of time. I will try my best to get it all in while there is still time! And if I miss anything I am sure my place in heaven will be better than anything I might have missed on earth!
